Autumn Covid booster information

August 16, 2023 | Claire Frew

The UK Government has recently released details about the autumn Covid booster.

The following people are eligible for the booster:

  • Residents in care homes for older adults
  • All adults aged 65 years and over
  • People aged 6 months to 64 years in a clinical risk group
  • People aged 12 to 64 years who are household contacts of people with immunosuppression
  • People aged 16 to 64 years who are carers and staff working in care homes for older adults

This is because the risk of severe Covid continues to be strongly associated with increasing age and underlying health conditions.  NHS England will confirm details on how and when eligible people can access the autumn booster vaccine soon.  The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised the autumn programme should aim to complete vaccinations by early December 2023.
