Some people, including those aged 50 years or over, those at higher risk or who are pregnant, and frontline health and social care workers, will be offered a seasonal booster (autumn booster).
You can book your seasonal vaccination online or call119. The NHS will contact you when it is your turn to book in for the vaccine. You do not need to contact the NHS. Other eligible groups should wait to be contacted by the NHS.
Your GP may also invite you for a vaccination.
A list of walk-in clinics is available on this NHS website.
The COVID-19 and flu vaccine can be given on the same
day and some people might get both vaccines at the same time. This may
not always be possible. Please get each vaccination as
soon as you can, rather than waiting to get both at the same time.
NHS COVID pass and vaccinations
The NHS COVID pass shows your vaccination details. This is your COVID-19 status. You may be asked to show your pass to travel abroad, or at events and venues in England asking for proof of your status.
You can also get a paper copy of the pass by calling 119 or you can apply online. The paper copy covers your vaccination status only.
If you're travelling abroad, check the foreign travel advice on GOV.UK before you travel to find out the entry requirements of the country you're visiting.
