Flu (also known as influenza) is a highly infectious illness caused by the flu virus. It spreads rapidly through small droplets coughed or sneezed into the air by an infected person. For most people, flu is unpleasant but not serious. You will usually recover within a week.
Studies have shown that flu vaccines provide effective protection against the flu, although protection may not be complete and may vary between people. Protection from the vaccine gradually decreases and flu strains change over time. Therefore, new vaccines are made each year and people at risk of flu are encouraged to be vaccinated every year.
The flu vaccination is offered to people in at-risk groups. These people are at greater risk of developing serious complications if they catch flu, such as pregnant women and elderly people.
Second Covid-19 Booster Vaccine Service – May 2022
Getting your second booster dose
You can book an appointment for a second booster dose if you are:
- 65 years or older, or
- Immunocompromised Patients >12 years
You should get a second booster at least 4 months (at least 120 days) after your first booster .
If you have had COVID-19 since your first booster, wait at least 4 months before you get a second booster
previous vaccination dates available on the covid-19 digital certificate
Why you may need a second booster
You may be more at risk of serious illness from COVID-19 if you have a weak immune system or are aged 65 or older.
This is because:
- the protection from previous doses may weaken with time
- you may be at greater risk of severe illness
- your immune system may not respond as strongly to vaccination
Data from other countries shows that a second booster will give you extra protection from COVID-19. A second booster can prevent the possibility of hospitalisation or death from COVID-19 illness.
