Why do I need a booster?
Those most at risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19 are being offered a booster.
Viruses, like COVID-19, spread much more easily in winter, so it’s important that everyone eligible tops up their protection with a booster.
Can I have my flu vaccine and COVID-19 booster in the same appointment?
Yes, if you are eligible to have both vaccines, you may be offered both in the same appointment. It is safe to receive both vaccines at the same time.
Many local COVID-19 vaccination clinics take walk ins, no appointment is needed. Click the link above to see where they are in the coming days.
There is also a 'ManchesterJabCab' - Free taxi transport to get a vaccine or booster for individuals and families who can't get to or from a vaccination centre.
