Why do I need an autumn booster?

Why do I need an autumn booster?

More than 94% of England’s population have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine – saving lives, helping tens of thousands to stay out of hospital, and enabling us to return to lives we knew before the pandemic began.  

However, the virus is still with us and is still making people very ill.  

The JCVI has stated that winter will remain the season when the threat from COVID-19 is greatest for individuals and communities. Viruses, like COVID-19, spread much more easily in winter when we socialise indoors, so it’s important that everyone eligible tops up their protection with an autumn booster. 

The aim is to protect the whole population and protect those at greatest risk from the virus against severe COVID-19 disease over winter.
