A NEW booster vaccine is now available for residents aged 75 and over.

The spring booster vaccine is also available for people aged 12 and over who are immunosuppressed.

A spokesperson for Barnsley CCG said: “The NHS advice is to try and book your spring booster appointment for around six months after your last dose to get the best protection from your booster.

“You can book online or by calling 119 - please help the vaccine team by booking ahead rather than arriving without a booking.”
