COVID-19 vaccination is an important part of protecting yourself if you're at increased risk from COVID-19.
COVID-19 vaccines for people with a severely weakened immune system
COVID-19 vaccines are normally given seasonally, but some people with a severely weakened immune system may need additional protection at other times. This may be because of a health condition or medical treatment.
Your specialist or GP will assess if you or your child (aged 6 months or over) need a COVID-19 vaccine. They should let you know when to get vaccinated and help you find a local appointment. Speak to your specialist or GP for advice.
Seasonal COVID-19 vaccines
The NHS will contact you if your NHS record suggests you may be eligible for a seasonal spring COVID-19 vaccine.
You may be offered a spring COVID-19 vaccine from April 2024 if you:

When available, there will be different ways to get a seasonal COVID-19 vaccine:
- booking online
