Krista Clubb, Primary Care Vaccination Service Manager says:

“The Spring booster will improve your level of protection and is the best way to protect your health and those around you.  Letters will be sent out to people eligible in the coming weeks to invite them to come along to an appointment. We would encourage anyone who has still to receive any dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, to come and get vaccinated as soon as they become eligible.”
