Islanders in Jersey who are eligible for a Covid-19 booster jab will be able to book another vaccination from Thursday (1 September).

The extra dose of the vaccine is intended to protect the most vulnerable islanders during the autumn and winter months.

The government's Autumn Booster programme will be open to:

  • care home residents and staff

  • health and social workers

  • all adults over the age of 50

  • anyone aged under 50 who is clinically 'at risk', lives in the same home as someone who's immunosuppressed, or is a carer

Booster jabs will be made available in an order which prioritises those most at risk, starting with the over 80s, care home residents and staff.

More dates for other groups will be announced by Jersey's health service in future.

Islanders who had their last jab at least three months ago will be able to book another appointment online, with slots available from Tuesday 6 September.

Deputy Medical Officer of Health, Dr Ivan Muscat, said: "The booster will be offered as a bivalent vaccine which is able to target both the original strain of COVID-19 and the Omicron variant. This means that it will offer greater protection against the variant we currently have in Jersey.

"Vaccination protects against severe disease and hospitalisation and severe disease is more likely with increasing age and in immunosuppressed individuals. I, therefore, urge everyone that is eligible to book their booster dose to protect themselves this coming season."
