The Covid-19 spring vaccination campaign started on 15th April 2024 with visits to older adult care homes and eligible housebound patients, followed by all other eligible cohorts from 22nd April.

In spring 2024, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advises that a COVID-19 vaccine should be offered to:

  • adults aged 75 years and over
  • residents in a care home for older adults
  • individuals aged 6 months and over who are immunosuppressed (as defined in tables 3 or 4 in the COVID-19 chapter of the Green Book)

Your GP practice will contact you to book you in for an appointment if you are part of the eligible cohorts. However, If you know you are eligible for a Covid-19 vaccination this spring you do not have to wait to be invited. You will be able to use the National Booking System to book an appointment from the 22nd April onwards.

The Covid-19 spring vaccination campaign will end on 30th June 2024.
