Get your spring booster today and be protected this Summer: 5 Facts about the Spring Booster 

Coronavirus is still around us, so getting your Covid-19 spring booster jab will protect you and your loved ones this summer.

You are eligible for the spring booster If you are aged:

  • 75 and over 
  • 12 and over and have a weakened immune system 
  • If you live in a care home for older people

If you are thinking about getting your spring booster jab, here are 5 things you should know:

  1. The spring booster is a precautionary measure because protection from your previous doses may decline over time.
  2. It will top up your immunity from previous doses and will continue to keep you and loved ones safe during the summer months. The latest results from the COV-BOOST trial, led by University Hospital Southampton, show that a fourth dose mRNA vaccine is safe and boosts antibody levels – even higher than that of a third dose.*
  3. You may be offered appointment dates from 3 months (91 days) after your last dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. You should book your appointment at least 3-6 months after your last Booster dose. For more information, visit:
  4. So far in South West London, over 63,000 Spring Booster vaccinations have been given.
  5. You don’t have to wait to be contacted by the NHS, you can book online or walk-in to your local vaccination centre. To find your nearest walk-in clinic in south west London, please visit our walk-in webpage.

Vaccines remain our best line of defence against Covid-19. It’s never too late to come forward for your first, second or booster dose. Book an appointment on the NHS national booking system, by calling 119.
