Pharmacy staff: Booking your autumn C-19 booster

NHS England has announced that from Wednesday 7th September 2022, around 7 million people, including those aged 75 and over, people who are immunosuppressed and health and care workers will be able to book an appointment for their COVID-19 booster vaccinations online or by calling 119.

From Wednesday, health and care workers, including pharmacy staff, can book their COVID-19 booster vaccinations through the National Booking Service.

Eligible staff are encouraged to book an appointment for a booster dose as soon as possible, provided it has been at least three months since their last dose of the vaccine.

For other eligible patients (not health and care workers), invitations are being sent out and will be landing on their doormats from Wednesday 7th September inviting people to book their appointment for the following week without delay. The NHS will contact people when it is their turn to book in for the vaccine – there will be no need for patients to contact the NHS.

The autumn booster campaign is among a package of NHS measures to prepare for winter as the health service continues to face record demand on its urgent and emergency care services.
