by Guy Murphy

COVID-19 first and second jabs

All Knowsley residents aged 12+ plus  are eligible for two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

To book an appointment, visit www.nhs.uk/coronavirus-vaccine, call 119 or contact your GP

COVID-19 Booster

Knowsley residents aged 18+, frontline health and care workers, carers and those aged 16+ with an underlying health condition are all eligible for a Booster jab. You can find out more on eligibility criteria here.

The booster will be offered in order of descending age groups, with priority given to the vaccination of older adults and those in a COVID-19 at-risk group. In response to the changing risk posed by the Omicron variant, the booster will now be given no sooner than 3 months after the primary course.

To book a Booster, visit www.nhs.uk/coronavirus-vaccine, call 119 or contact your GP.
