THE NHS has issued a final call for residents to come forward for their Covid-19 booster vaccine.

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised that the offer of an initial booster dose should end when the current autumn campaign ends, which will be on Sunday February 12, 2023.

Anyone yet to come forward for their Covid booster is being urged to do so before the end of the campaign.

The government has accepted the JCVI advice, which recommends that the booster offer for all 16 to 49 year olds who are not considered at risk should end at the same time as this autumn’s campaign.
