Following advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, Jersey's COVID-19 Booster Vaccination Programme will be offering a third booster dose of the vaccine to Islanders who are more at risk of serious disease from COVID. This includes those who were vaccinated in the early stages of the vaccination programme:
Islanders living in residential care homes for older adults
adults aged 50 years or over

Third dose for severely immunocompromised people
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advised that people over the age of 12 with severely weakened immune systems should have a third vaccine dose as part of their primary COVID-19 vaccination schedule.
JVCI advice and list of who can receive a third dose on gov.uk
People who need a third dose are those who had a severely weakened immune system around the time they had their first 2 doses. This includes those who had or have:
- blood cancers (such as leukaemia or lymphoma)
- lowered immunity due to treatment (such as steroid medication, biological therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy)
- lowered immunity due to inherited disorders of the immune system
- an organ or bone marrow transplant
- diseases that affect the immune system such as poorly controlled HIV
- other diseases or treatments as advised by your specialist
How to get your third dose
We are working with GPs and specialist teams to contact people who are severely immunosuppressed. The Vaccination Team will be in touch with you to arrange your third dose.
If you have not heard from the team but think you might be severely immunocompromised and eligible for a third dose after reading the list of conditions, you should contact your GP or specialist team who will be able to make a referral.
This offer is separate to any potential booster programme.
Second doses of the vaccine are scheduled between 4 and 12 weeks from the date you receive your first dose.
You'll receive an email or SMS with confirming the date and time of your second appointment.
