The UK's National Health Services (NHS) recently announced changes to its COVID-19 vaccination program. After February 12, 2023, 'you will not be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.'

Some people at increased risk, for example, because of age or certain medical conditions, may be offered a seasonal booster later this year.

If you are eligible for this, the NHS will contact you when it's your turn to get vaccinated.

In 2022, the NHS confirmed everyone aged 5 (on or before 31 August 2022) and over can get a 1st and 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Children who turned 5 on or after 1 September 2022 can only get a 1st and 2nd dose of a COVID-19 vaccine if they’re either at high risk due to a health condition or because of a weakened immune system or living with someone who has a weakened immune system.
