Immunisation and vaccination

Being up to date with routine vaccinations helps prevent you, your family, and others from becoming unwell. More here: Why vaccination is important 

If you’re not sure about you or your child’s vaccine status your GP surgery can advise. You may also be able to view your status via the NHS app

Covid-19 spring booster

The NHS will contact you if you are eligible for a seasonal spring Covid-19 booster vaccine. If you are eligible because you are age 75 or over or you or your child are immunosuppressed, you can book online or by calling 119 now. 

Those who are immunosuppressed:

If you or your child are immunosuppressed your protection against COVID-19 may fade more quickly than other people’s. 

You may be eligible for the vaccine if you or your child:
  • have a disorder affecting your immune system
  • are undergoing immunosuppressive treatment such as for cancer
  • are taking medications that increase your risk of infection.

Check the summary of health conditions, treatments and medications that can cause a weakened immune system here.

MMR vaccine

Make sure you and your family are protected – The MMR vaccine helps prevent against Measles, Mumps and Rubella

Two doses of the MMR vaccine give excellent lifelong protection so if you or your child have missed out, contact your GP surgery to book. 

Your GP will offer your child one vaccine dose when they are a year old and another at 3 years, 4 months. Both doses are needed to be fully protected. 

School age vaccines

School age children are offered routine vaccines at school, but if they missed these for any reason or your child is home schooled, walk-in catch up vaccine clinics are running throughout the spring and summer. See dates and venues below

Shingles

The shingles vaccine is recommended for: 

  • anyone aged 50+ with a severely weakened immune system
  • anyone turning 65 on or after September 2023
  • anyone aged 70 to 79

Shingles is a common condition that causes a painful rash. It can sometimes lead to more serious problems.

Being vaccinated reduces the chance of catching shingles and if you do catch it, reduces the possibility of more serious problems developing. 

The shingles vaccine programme aims to offer the vaccine to those eligible all year around, with individuals becoming eligible as they celebrate their birthdays throughout the year.

Find out more about why you may have to wait for your shingles vaccine here. The vaccine programme aims to support the NHS and GP Practices to deliver the programme in a manageable way. Eventually offering the vaccine when people becoming eligible as they celebrate their birthdays throughout the year.

More information, including a handy eligibilty calculator can be found here: getshinglesready.co.uk

Flu vaccine

Flu vaccines are safe and effective. They’re offered on the NHS every year in autumn or early winter to help protect people at risk of flu and its complications.

Your GP probably won’t prescribe antibiotics as they do not work for viral infections like the flu – antibiotics won’t relieve symptoms or speed up your recovery.
