NHS Lothian urges those eligible to have Covid booster
NHS Lothian is continuing to urge those eligible to get their spring dose of the Covid-19 vaccine to provide maximum protection this summer.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation advised that a spring dose of the coronavirus vaccine would be made eligible for adults aged 75 and over, or who will turn 75 by June 30, 2022. Residents in older adult care homes and people aged 12 and over with a weakened immune system are also eligible. All those entitled to the spring booster should have been contacted by letter.
“I want to commend communities across Edinburgh and the Lothians for their continued support and thank our vaccinators for their phenomenal ongoing efforts to protect our communities.”
