COVID-19 vaccinations

Why should I get the COVID vaccine and booster vaccine?

All of the COVID vaccines being used in the UK are very likely to prevent you from getting COVID-19 symptoms if you are exposed to the virus, and even if you do catch the virus and display symptoms, it is much less likely that someone fully vaccinated would need to go to hospital.

To maintain this high level of protection through the colder months and the flu season, a booster jab is advised for those at greater risk from COVID-19, to prolong the protection and reduce the chance of serious disease this winter.
