The latest figures show that more than 10 million people across the UK have received their COVID-19 booster or third jabs, ensuring the vital protection they have secured from their first two doses is maintained over the winter months.
NHS England will be inviting another three million people who will become eligible for their booster next week. More than 13 million invites, including texts, letters and emails, have already been sent to eligible people in England so far asking them to book their booster jabs online through the National Booking Service. The additional letters due to land next week will mean around 16 million invites have been sent in England since the NHS booster programme began.
The national booking service has now also been updated to allow those eligible for a booster vaccine - people aged over 50 and those most at risk of COVID-19 - to pre-book their jab five months after their second dose. So when you get the call, please go for your booster vaccine.
