The Covid-19 vaccine booster programme for health and social care workers In Surrey Heartlands (North West Surrey, Guildford and Waverley, East Surrey and Surrey Downs areas) will commence from 6 September 2021.

This approach is based on current recommendations from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) and aims to prolong the protection the vaccination provides against Covid-19 ahead of the winter months. Please note that JCVI recommendations are subject to change.

Currently frontline health and social care staff, adults aged 70 or over, older people living in care homes, and over 16s who are immunosuppressed or clinically extremely vulnerable will be offered the jab from September as part of stage 1 of the programme.

We are working as quickly as possible to meet these recommendations and will be in touch with colleagues across health and social care with details on how to book and arrange an appointment.

In the meantime if you have any queries please email syheartlandsccg.hcwvaccination@nhs.net
