We strongly recommend that everyone who is eligible for vaccination against Covid be vaccinated, this will reduce the risks for yourself, your family and the whole community.
It is very important to have your booster when eligible as immunity lessens when it is more than six months after your second dose.
Some groups of people are immunosuppressed and are recommended to have a third dose from two months after their second vaccination. If you are on immunosuppressive drugs, have a blood cancer, or are having chemotherapy for other cancers discuss a third dose with your Doctor.
COVID-19 vaccinations are provided by most pharmacies and some General Practice Clinics.
For general advice about COVID-19 vaccinations including to check which phase of vaccination you are eligible for and lists of places to receive the vaccine, see here.
