The coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccines are safe and effective. They give you the best protection against Covid-19.
Even if you have had a Covid infection before, you will get more protection from the vaccine, and it is important you get all the recommended doses.
Covid-19 vaccine booster doses are offered seasonally. They're an important part of protecting yourself from Covid-19 if you're at increased risk.
People aged 75 and over, and those aged 5 and over who are immunosuppressed, are eligible for a Spring Covid-19 booster vaccine.
If you're eligible, the NHS will contact you when it's your turn to be vaccinated. You do not need to be up to date with your previous vaccinations to take up the offer of the spring booster.

You do not need to have a GP or an NHS number to get the Covid-19 vaccine.
This letter from NHS England and NHS Improvement and Public Health England explains how people can get the Covid-19 vaccine and if they want to, register at a GP practice. It is available in over 20 languages.
