Autumn booster dose
The Island expects to see another wave of higher levels of COVID-19 infection this Autumn and Winter. We are also entering an Influenza season much earlier than usual after very low flu levels since the pandemic began.
You can book your autumn booster if you're:
- aged 50 and over
- clinical risk group (aged 5 and over), including pregnancy
- household contacts of immunosuppressed individuals (age 5 and over)
- registered carers (age 16 and over)
- health and Social care workers
- residents and staff working in care homes for older adults
Walk in appointments are not available for the autumn booster.
You can receive your flu vaccine and autumn booster at the same time at Fort Regent.
Book a vaccination appointment
First and second dose
You can get your first and second dose if you're aged 5 years or over.
Second doses of the vaccine should be booked between 8 and 12 weeks from the date you receive your first dose.
It’s not too late to receive your primary course. You can still book if you haven’t yet received a vaccine or would like a booster.
Home visit and care home visits
Home visits are available to anyone who is house bound.
If you received your last dose at home, you will be contacted by the vaccine programme to arrange a booster.
If you did not receive your last dose at home but are now considered housebound, you should call the helpline to register for a home visit.
If you have recently moved into residential care and are now living in a care home, your care home will arrange a visit from the vaccination team.
You can get your booster dose if you're:
- aged 16 years or over
- clinically extremely vulnerable (high risk) aged 12 and over
- living with someone who is immunosuppressed if you are aged 12 and over
You will be given a booster dose of either Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty) or Moderna (Spikevax) vaccine. Data shows both vaccines provide a strong booster response and are well tolerated.
Studies have shown that you only need a half dose of Moderna (Spikevax) to boost the immune system well. This half dose of Moderna (Spikevax) is expected to have a low rate of side effects including myocarditis.
You will be offered the right vaccine for you, which may be the same or different from the vaccines that you had before.
