Spring 2024 COVID-19 Booster Vaccinations

We will be holding clinics at Almondsbury Surgery during April and May 2024.


  • Individuals aged 75 years and older.
  • Residents in care homes for older people.
  • Individuals aged 18 years and older with a weakened immune system.

Timing of the Spring Booster:

You will be invited to have your booster around 6 months after your last dose, but you can have it as soon as 3 months.

If you are turning 75 years of age between April and June, you do not have to wait until your birthday, you can attend when you are called for vaccination.

You should have received an invitation by text.  Please use the link to book an appropriate appointment here at Almondsbury Surgery.

Alternatively you can book using the NHS app.  You can also find your nearest walk-in vaccination site from the NHS website.

Vaccine in use this Spring:

You will be given a booster dose of a vaccine made by Moderna and approved in the UK.  These vaccines have been updated since the original vaccines and target a different COVID-19 variant.  These updated vaccines boost protection well, and give slightly higher levels of antibody against the more recent strains of COVID-19 (Omicron).

Who cannot take up the offer of a spring booster:

There are very few eligible people who should not have a dose this Spring.  If you have had a severe reaction to a previous dose of the vaccine you should discuss this with your doctor.
