Covid-19 Autumn Booster

As part of the JCVI’s (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) review of the Covid-19 vaccination programme, they have published a statement with their final advice on eligibility for the autumn 2023 Covid-19 booster programme.

For autumn 2023, the JCVI is recommending a single dose of Covid-19 vaccine be offered to:

  • Residents in a care home for older adults
  • All adults aged 65 years and over
  • People aged 6 months to 64 years in a clinical risk group, as defined in tables 3 and 4 of the COVID-19 chapter of the Green Book
  • Frontline health and social care workers
  • People aged 12 to 64 years who are household contacts, as defined in the Green Book, of people with immunosuppression
  • People aged 16 to 64 years who are carers, as defined in the Green Book, and staff working in care homes for older adults

The Covid-19 2023 Autumn Booster delivery will start in Gwent on September 11th, like last year we will be starting with our most vulnerable across care homes in Gwent. We are currently finalising plans for the other eligible groups for the Autumn booster and will be inviting eligible people soon.

Those who are eligible for the booster this Autumn will receive an invitation by letter, text or phone call, we aim to invite everyone by the end of November.

Don’t worry if you don’t hear from us straight away, appointments will be given as we work through the eligibility groups.
