Latest Booster Information for 18-39 year olds (updated 3 December)
Following updated guidance from the JCVI on boosters for 18-39s, the NHS will be expanding the booster programme – booster jabs will be given in priority order so that the most vulnerable people are protected first, while also increasing capacity to vaccinate millions more people in a shorter space of time.
The NHS will contact you when you are due to book in for your lifesaving booster vaccination, and when you get the call, it’s vital that people come forward as quickly as possible.
Any pupils who were not in school because of COVID-19, or any other reason, will be given the opportunity to been vaccinated in due course. Young people who are educated at home will also be offered vaccination and further information about this will be available soon. This website will be updated regularly, so please check back for more information.
If you have specific questions relating to your child’s vaccination, or the consent process, please contact the school immunisation team on: 0121 466 7635 or BCHC.email@example.com
