RESIDENTS who are eligible for a spring Covid booster vaccine are being invited to ‘grab a jab’.

This latest vaccination is being offered to those considered most at risk, following advice from the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), including those over 75 and those with a reduced immune system and older adult care home residents.

Dr David Crichton, NHS South Yorkshire chief medical officer and local GP, said: “As we enter spring, it’s important to remember immunity from Covid vaccines declines over time.

“Unfortunately, the virus is still with us and affecting thousands of people across the UK every week.”
