Covid-19 vaccinations for Herefordshire residents

Covid-19 booster vaccine

Every person aged 5+ is now eligible for Covid-19 vaccination and most people are eligible for a booster dose.

If you are concerned about any aspect of vaccination and your health, or about attending your vaccine appointment, please use the following information:

The level of protection offered by vaccines can begin to wane after time. The booster will help extend the protection you gained from your first two doses and reduce the risk of you needing admission to hospital due to Covid-19 infection this winter.

If you are also invited for a flu vaccination and you are eligible for a booster Covid-19 jab, you can have both vaccinations at the same time.

Read more about the Covid-19 booster on the GOV.UK website.

Vaccinations for 5 to 11 year olds

Anyone in Herefordshire aged between 5 and 11 is now able to have a first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. There is more information about the Covid-19 vaccination for children on the NHS website.

There is more information for children and young people about the Covid-19 vaccine on the GOV.UK website. You can also download the NHS Covid-19 vaccination guide for parents of children aged 5 to 11.

If you are not well when it is your appointment

You should not attend a vaccination appointment if you are self-isolating, waiting for a Covid-19 test or within 4 weeks of having a positive Covid-19 test or if you are unsure if you are fit and well.

If you are not feeling well, wait until you feel better to have your vaccination. You should try to have it as soon as possible. You can call the same number that you used to make your first appointment or manage your vaccination appointment online.

When you are vaccinated

You will be given a Covid-19 vaccination card.
