Covid Booster Dose
NIAC recommended groups for the Autumn COVID-19 booster vaccine programme -
those aged 50 years and above
those aged 5 years and above with immunocompromise associated with a suboptimal response to vaccination
those aged 5 years and above with medical conditions associated with a higher risk of COVID-19 hospitalisation, severe disease or death
health and care workers
The recommended interval between the autumn booster and the last booster dose is 6 months for those aged 50 years and above and is also 6 months for those aged 5 years and above with immunocompromise.
For all others aged 5-49 years the recommended interval is 9 months.
In exceptional circumstances or for operational reasons the minimum interval of three months between booster doses can be used, for example to ensure early protection this autumn if the spring booster was given at least 3 months ago.
