Those with weakened immune systems are being offered a THIRD primary COVID-19 vaccination instead of just two doses.
The third vaccination is NOT the same as a booster.
The third dose is a top up because while the first two doses will have offered some protection, they may not have generated a full immune response compared to those who do not have weakened immune systems.
The aim is to give people who have a weakened immune system a similar level of protection as someone without a weakened immune system who has had two doses.
Those who are eligible for a third dose are being identified and will receive a letter from NHSE, please take this with you to one of the drop in sessions.
Please wait for the NHS to contact you.
