COVID-19 Booster Jab vaccination
Who will be offered a Booster Jab?
Booster Jabs are an additional dose of a COVID-19 vaccination, given around 6 months after the initial vaccination course is completed. This is to help extend the protection offered by the first two doses, as there is some evidence that the effectiveness of the vaccine wanes over time.
Shantys Pharmacy will support NHS England to deliver the COVID-19 booster vaccinations and will be offering these in store. Patients will be invited by the NHS to book their COVID-19 booster vaccine appointment via the National Booking Service.
A booster vaccination will be offered to those who have had their second COVID-19 vaccination 6 or more months ago and who are at higher risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19, or who are more likely to come into contact with other people with COVID-19, to ensure they have increased protection from the virus. These groups of people will include:
- People aged 50 and over
- People who live and work in care homes
- Frontline health and social care workers
- People aged 16 and over who are at high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19
- Carers aged 16 and over
- People aged 16 and over who live with someone who are at high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19
