Covid vaccine: The four groups of people that could get autumn Covid booster


Later this year the JCVI will announce its final plans, and until then it will continue assessing the situation “in relation to the timing and value of doses for less vulnerable older adults”.

Professor Wei Shen Lim, Chair of COVID-19 vaccination on the JCVI, said: “Last year’s autumn booster vaccination programme provided excellent protection against severe COVID-19, including against the Omicron variant.

“We have provided interim advice on an autumn booster programme for 2022 so that the NHS and care homes are able to start the necessary operational planning, to enable high levels of protection for more vulnerable individuals and frontline healthcare staff over next winter.

“As we continue to review the scientific data, further updates to this advice will follow.”
