Booster shots

A booster vaccination is an extra jab for people who have had one jab (with the Janssen vaccine or after going through a COVID-19 infection) or two jabs (with Pfizer, Moderna or Astra Zeneca). The booster can help to keep people optimally protected against coronavirus. A booster completes the basic series of jabs. From March 2022, 12 to 17 year olds will also be offered a booster jab.
