Covid Latest: Autumn Vaccines Are Coming, Here's What We Know So Far

Another season, another vaccine. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised the government to provide an autumn Covid-19 booster programme.

The government has confirmed the autumn programme will be rolled out ahead of the winter months, when Covid-19 infections typically increase.

Here’s what we know about the autumn jabs so far.

Who will be eligible for autumn vaccines?

Those in ‘older age groups’, residents in care homes for older adults, frontline health and social care workers, and those with certain underlying health conditions receive a booster vaccine ahead of the winter period.

‘Older age groups’ is most likely to mean over 75s, like the spring vaccine rollout, although this detail is to be confirmed.
