Residents encouraged to book spring booster jab

Eligible people in the Black Country and West Birmingham are being reminded to book their spring booster vaccination.

Thousands of people across the area have already been invited by text, email or letter to book their spring booster appointment.

Now, care home residents, people who are 75 and over and those aged 12 and over who have a weakened immune system and are yet to receive an invite are being encouraged to come forward and book an appointment. Adults will be offered either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and those aged between 12 and 18 will be offered the Pfizer vaccine.

Appointments can be booked online via the National Booking System or by calling 119. Walk-in appointments are also available in selected locations, and you can find out if your local site is participating by visiting the NHS online walk-in finder. Sally Roberts, Chief Nursing Officer for NHS Black Country and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group, said:

“We’re delighted that we can now offer appointments to everyone eligible for a spring booster dose.

“Having a spring booster jab helps vulnerable people, including the elderly and those with weakened immune systems, maintain a high level of protection against the virus.

“COVID-19 hasn’t gone away and it’s still spreading in our community, so it’s never been more important to get vaccinated. There’s no need to wait to be contacted, if you’re eligible you can book your spring booster dose now.

“Appointments and walk-ins are also still available for first, second and, for those eligible, booster doses, so do please come forward if you are due a dose. It’s never too late, even if you’ve previously declined the offer of a vaccination.”
