People in north Cumbria are being asked to wait for a call from the NHS regarding their coronavirus booster jab.
NHS North Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group said its teams “are currently working through the information and guidance published around the Covid Booster Jabs”.
“As we will be following the JCVI cohorts – as we did originally – we are asking people to wait to be called by the NHS for their booster,” it said.
Patients are asked not to call their practice as bookings can not be made for booster jabs.
Anyone who has not had their first or second coronavirus jabs can book via https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/
Or drop in to any walk-in sessions – more information here https://northcumbriaccg.nhs.uk/dropins or on the national ‘grab a jab’ site https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/find-a-walk-in-coronavirus-covid-19-vaccination-site/
Anyone aged 16 or over is encouraged to get both first and second jabs, with an eight-week gap between jabs.
People will be called for their boosters – jab 3 – in line with the priority cohorts identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccines and Immunisations (JCVI).
