The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) says the following groups should be offered a Covid booster jab this autumn:

    residents in a care home for older adults
    all adults aged 65 years and over
    adults and children aged 6 months to 64 years in a clinical risk group, which includes pregnant   women
    frontline health and social care workers
    people aged 12 to 64 years who live with people who are  immunosuppressed
    people aged 16 to 64 years who are carers

When will Covid booster vaccines be available?

According to the UK Health Security Agency, the rollout is due to begin in October and NHS England will be specifying an exact date closer to the time.

The JCVI has advised that the autumn programme should aim to complete vaccinations by early December 2023.

Thanks ,but here in Ramsbottom our Surgery has not done the Spring boosters yet!
I must phone up to see what is happening, I have phoned three times to be told it is hard to get the vaccine!
Will try again immediately.
At 86 I think I am eligible!
Thanks again.
Viktoria.

P.S.No luck .
They have no idea what happened with the Spring one and no notification re the Autumn one as yet.
Not good is it.
But thanks again.V

That is not at all good, Viktoria.  You should have been contacted back in April for the Spring one. That roll out finished at the end of June.

You should  phone 119 to tell them your problem. They should help you out:

You'll need to tell them your Nat Health number and date of birth,etc.

Invitations/appointments to get the vaccine don't usually come from your surgery, they come from the NHS

Oh, so it must be different between areas - we have never had contact from our GP, but have always heard direct from NHS.
Sorry I got it wrong  :-X

Thanks for the reminder Jen.   Checked my surgery and they won't be offering Covid ones this year so booked one online at the local pharmacy  :)
