NHS seasonal flu and COVID-19 booster vaccination programme has now officially launched.
Social care staff of all ages who have a direct hands-on care role are eligible to receive a COVID-19 and flu vaccine this year.
Appointment booking is open for frontline staff. Ideally, it’s recommended to get vaccinated by the end of October.
All staff working in any function (including catering staff, office staff etc) in care homes for older adults are eligible for both vaccines.
