How to get a vaccine if you're eligible

To get vaccinated you can:

Get the recommended number of doses for the best protection

One dose of the vaccine should give you good protection from COVID-19 from three or four weeks after you've had it. The advice for most adults is they should get two doses, plus a booster. Children of age five and above are recommended to get two or more doses.

If you've had COVID-19 recently, this will affect when you can have a vaccination.

Keep yourself, friends and family safe by getting the vaccine.

COVID-19 vaccine boosters

Some children and adults are eligible for COVID-19 booster vaccines.

The protection you get from a COVID-19 vaccine decreases over time. So, if you’re 50 or over, in an at-risk group or pregnant you can improve your immunity with a booster dose.
