Over 18? Don’t Miss Your Vaccine

Over 37.5 million UK residents have accessed both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, helping protect themselves, their families, and their communities.

In London alone, over 5.3 million people have accessed both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Have you accessed your COVID-19 vaccine in south east London?

For friends, festivals and trips, for doing all the things we’ve missed, you can get your vaccine for whoever or whatever reason matters to you.

Whatever your reason, don’t miss your vaccine.

Spring Booster

You should have your spring booster about 6 months (and not before 3 months) since your last dose of vaccine.

You are eligible for a spring booster dose if you:

  • are aged 75 or over
  • live in a care home for older people

You are also eligible if you are aged 12 or over and have had or have:

  • a blood cancer, such as leukaemia or lymphoma
  • a weakened immune system due to a treatment, such as steroid medicine, biological therapy (medicine that helps the immune system to fight cancer), chemotherapy or radiotherapy
  • an organ or bone marrow transplant
  • a condition that means you have a very high risk of getting infections
  • a condition or treatment that your specialist says makes you need an extra dose

If you missed your first booster, it is important to have the spring booster as soon as possible. You might need another booster in addition to your usual flu vaccine in the autumn.

Please find more info on how to get the spring booster here

Book my appointment online

COVID-19 is more serious for people with a weakened immune system. To get the best protection against the virus and reduce the risk of severe illness, those aged 12 and above with a weakened immune system are being offered a booster dose.

You can book now if it’s been 3-6 months since your last COVID-19 vaccine dose.

If you have any questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, please speak with your hospital clinician or GP. You can also find further information here
