COVID-19 vaccination

Booster vaccinations

The Government has confirmed that Health and Social Care Workers (HSCW) will be eligible for a COVID-19 booster vaccination this autumn/winter, from six months after their second dose.

The programme includes all frontline social care workers working directly with children or adults who are more likely to be seriously unwell if they catch COVID-19. For more information on eligibility and walk-in clinic details, visit the NHS HSCW page.

I work directly with vulnerable adults

  • Self declare via the national booking system. Use the website or call 119 to book an appointment at a number of community pharmacies across the county
  • Attend a ‘drop-in’ session.  Over the next two weeks frontline staff who are already eligible for their booster (i.e. are beyond six months since their second dose) can walk-in without an appointment to get their jab. You do not need to be registered with one of the GP practices to attend.

I work directly with children and young people

If you’re aged over 50 or have an underlying health condition that makes you more at risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19 (if you fall into this category you will have been informed at the time of the first round of vaccinations), you are encouraged to wait until you are invited for your jab via your GP

  • Attend a ‘drop-in’ session.  Over the next two weeks frontline staff who are already eligible for their booster (i.e. are beyond six months since their second dose) can walk-in without an appointment to get their jab. You do not need to be registered with one of the GP practices to attend.

ID you need to take to your booster appointment:

Please make sure you take at least one of the following with you, plus your NHS number and vaccination card if you have it:

  • A recent letter from their employer
  • A staff ID badge
  • A recent (last 3 months) payslip which shows their employer
  • A eligibility letter or invitation to have their vaccine in the first phase of the programme from Gloucestershire CCG or Gloucestershire County Council (for paid personal carers)

Remember, if you haven’t already, you can still access your first or second dose of the vaccine if needed by attending a drop-in clinic, or booking an appointment via local GP services or the national booking system or phone 119.

If you have any questions about the vaccination programme, please take a look at the Gloucestershire NHS COVID-19 portal in the first instance.
