Following news that people across England can now receive their third ‘booster’ coronavirus vaccine at walk-in centres up and down the country, we take a look at where people in Bristol can get a booster jab.
Who can get a COVID-19 booster vaccine
The NHS outlines on their website who is eligible to get one of the booster vaccines.
A spokesperson said: “Booster vaccine doses will be available on the NHS for people most at risk from COVID-19 who have had a 2nd dose of a vaccine at least 6 months ago.”
- people aged 50 and over
- people who live and work in care homes
- frontline health and social care workers
- people aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts them at high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19
- people aged 16 and over who are a main carer for someone at high risk from COVID-19
- people aged 16 and over who live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
People who are pregnant and in 1 of the eligible groups can also get a booster dose.
