Spring Covid-19 Vaccinations

Posted on:

The NHS in West Yorkshire offers local people protection in its new spring COVID-19 campaign starting in care homes for older adults from Monday 15th April and to wider eligible groups on Monday 22nd April.

Following Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advice, the eligible cohorts this spring include:

  • Residents in care homes for older adults
  • Adults aged 75 years and over by 30th June 2024
  • Individuals aged 6 months and over who are immunosuppressed.

The main change to eligibility from previous COVID-19 programmes is that those with a weakened immune system are now eligible from 6 months instead of 5 years.

People are encouraged to book a vaccination appointment through the NHS National Booking System.
