Spring booster dose for high risk groups

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advised a spring dose of the COVID-19 vaccine as a precaution to those at extremely high risk, most of whom received their first booster around 6 months ago.

Who will be offered the spring booster?

adults aged 75 years and over (or will turn 75 by 30 June 2022)residents in care homes for older adultsindividuals aged 12 years and over who have a weakened immune system

The spring booster dose will usually be offered around 6 months since your last dose of the coronavirus vaccine. Some people may be invited sooner than this (at least 3 months since their last dose) to help protect them against any increase in coronavirus infections.

NHS Scotland will contact you to arrange your appointment at the right time for you.
