The NHS is continuing to reassure residents that they will be able to access a booster vaccination before the end of the year if eligible.
A booster dose of the vaccine helps improve the protection given from the first 2 doses and gives longer-term protection against getting seriously ill from COVID-19, including the Omicron variant.
In response to the threat of the new Omicron variant, vaccination teams have accelerated plans to provide boosters to all adults over the age of 18, from three months after their second dose. Locally the NHS are confident that their incredible vaccination teams can once again rise to the challenge to ensure everyone who wants a booster is able to access one by the end of the year.
There are three ways people can access the booster vaccination:
- Via appointment at a GP-led primary care network (PCN) vaccination centre
- Via the national booking system
- At a drop-in clinic
Visit the NHS website to find out more details.

Last year Bishop Robert made this video which we shared on Facebook encouraging people to get their vaccinations – while things have moved on since then, the message is still the same.
