The NHS is offering a Spring Booster to those at the highest risk of severe illness from Covid. This will help protect them if COVID-19 rates are high over the summer months and reduce their chances of needing hospital treatment if they do catch the virus.
Those who can get a spring vaccination include people aged 75 and over (by 30 June 2023), people with a weakened immune system, and residents of care homes for older adults.
The GP Practices in the South Cotswolds will be running clinics at our Cirencester Hospital vaccination hub from 21st April. Eligible people can choose and book an appointment through the National Booking Service on 119, or through the NBS website.
