You can get your booster dose if you're:
- aged 16 years or over
- health and social care staff including care and domestic home care staff
- 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.
AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) may be an option if you have had this vaccine for one of your previous doses.
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.

Parents or carers attending the appointment must bring their ID, as well as the ID of their child or young person. Acceptable forms of ID include:
