Anyone aged 18+ who had their second jab three months ago should get boosted. Anyone aged 16 or 17 who had their first jab three months ago should get their second dose. These groups can book appointments, or attend a walk-in clinic.
Anyone aged 12 to 15 who had their first jab three months ago should get their second dose, and should book an appointment in advance.
