    Covid-19 Booster Vaccine

    Viruses like coronavirus can make you feel poorly. People with a learning disability are more likely to become very poorly if you catch coronavirus. Having a vaccine is the best way to help you stay healthy.

    The coronavirus vaccine is free. You should have had two injections already. You will be asked by your doctor to go for an extra coronavirus injection. Sometimes this is called a booster. This will be at least 3 months after your second injection. It is really important that you get your coronavirus vaccine when you are invited to as it will protect you from becoming very poorly from coronavirus.

    If you have had your first and your second vaccines you can either –
    (1) Talk to your GP practice (local doctor) about getting the extra vaccine or
    (2) Book online to get your vaccine at a chemist (pharmacy) or vaccination centre on this website https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/
