Make sure you book your COVID-19 booster to maximise protection

People aged 18 and over can book boosters online.

All adults aged 18 and over can book their appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine booster through the online portal on NHS inform. If you are unable to access the online portal you can book an appointment through the National Helpline on 0800 030 8013.

Even if you’ve been double-vaccinated, your immunity against COVID-19 wanes over time. That’s why boosters are necessary. The booster vaccine gives you the protection you need against serious COVID-19 illness. Local Health Boards are offering additional drop-in facilities - you can find information on local health board websites and social media.

Appointments must be booked at least 12 weeks after a second dose however adults with a confirmed case of the virus since receiving a vaccine should wait four weeks from testing positive to receive their booster. Even if you have had COVID-19 it is still important you come forward and complete your vaccination course to maximise your protection.

You can view a short video on how to use the booking portal.

Anyone in earlier groups who missed their vaccination can book an appointment by calling the National Helpline on 0800 030 8013 which is open from 8am to 8pm, 7 days a week. For more information about the COVID-19 booster vaccine visit NHS Inform.
