Changes to COVID-19 vaccine booster doses

From 12 February 2023, the Autumn COVID-19 booster vaccine ceased.

Some people at increased risk, for example, because of age or certain medical conditions, may be offered a seasonal booster later this year.

If you are eligible for this, the NHS will contact you when it’s your turn to get vaccinated.

For more information see the NHS website or call 119.

Take steps to reduce risks

While there are cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the UK, there is a risk you can catch it or pass it on. You could still catch or spread it even if you're fully vaccinated or have had the virus before.

COVID-19 is spread through close contact with people who have the virus. People with the virus can spread it even if they do not have symptoms.

When someone with the virus breathes, speaks, coughs or sneezes, they release small droplets containing the virus.

You can catch COVID-19 if you breathe in these droplets or touch surfaces covered with droplets.

How to help stop the spread of COVID-19

  • meet people outside if possible
  • open doors and windows to let in fresh air if meeting people inside
  • limit the number of people you meet and avoid crowded places
  • wear a face covering when it's hard to stay away from other people – particularly indoors or in crowded places
  • wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day

For more information see the GOV.UK website.
