Seasonal booster jab | Get a COVID-19 vaccination | Oldham Council

Seasonal booster jab

You may be offered a seasonal booster if you:

  • are aged 75 or over (you need to have turned 75 on or before 30 June 2023)
  • live in a care home for older adults
  • are aged 5 or over and have a weakened immune system

Like some other vaccines, levels of protection may decline over time. Booster doses help boost your antibodies and give you good protection from becoming seriously ill or needing to go to hospital if you catch COVID-19.

Booster doses are an important part of protecting yourself from COVID-19 if you are at a higher risk.

For example because of age or certain medical conditions, you may be offered a seasonal booster.

If you are eligible for this, the NHS will contact you when it’s your turn to get vaccinated.
