Updated information on Covid booster programme in Manchester and how to get help with any questions

The Government announced on Sunday 12th December 2021 that all over 18s who had their second Covid vaccination more than 3 months ago (91 days), are now able to have their Covid booster. If you have any questions or concerns about the vaccination come forward, by ringing the dedicated free helpline on 0800 840 3858 or by texting 07890 036892. The helpline is open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm and a translation service is available.

 Key Vaccine information:

  • Vaccines save lives – and it is never too late to come forward and have one and start getting the protection that they can give.
  • In the meantime, if you have been vaccinated, it’s normal for that immunity to reduce over time. This means that the protection you get from your first two doses doesn’t last forever.
  • And, at the moment, we know that two doses of the vaccine are not enough protection against the Omicron variant. But, the good news is that the boosters are very effective in bringing that protection back, to help prevent severe illness and death.
  • That’s why vaccines are still our best defence against Covid and its variants.
