COVID-19 Vaccine Update
All aged 18+ years are encouraged to consider a COVID-19 booster six months from your last Covid vaccine or illness. Those with medical conditions that increase the risk of severe COVID-19 or over 65 years are strongly encouraged to get boosted, regardless of the number of doses received. Those aged 5-17 with complex health needs may also receive a booster, on advice from your GP or specialist.
The latest available vaccines are currently the Pfizer or Moderna Original/Omicron BA.4/5. These bivalent vaccines, including the predecessor Original/Omicron BA.1 are preferred over other vaccines. COVID-19 vaccines may be given at the same time as the flu vaccine.
