Certain groups of people are now eligible for their 4th coronavirus jab

The spring booster roll out has officially started in Scotland, with vulnerable people across the country being asked to get a second booster to protect themselves against Covid-19.

Spring boosters will be offered to vulnerable individuals at least 24 weeks following their last booster jab.

Appointments were rolled out at the beginning of March 2022, and many people have already received their letters.

Health Secretary Humza Yousaf released a statement following the announcement of the Spring Booster roll out, stating:

“Vaccination has been our most effective tool against coronavirus.

“However, the degree of protection offered wanes over time, which is why booster vaccination is needed to maintain the best protection against COVID-19 for those at highest risk of severe effects of the virus.”

Mr. Yousaf added: “The additional booster dose will improve your level of protection significantly and is the best way to protect your health and those around you.

“I continue to encourage everyone to receive the doses they are eligible for as and when they become available.”

Do I need an appointment for my covid booster?

You will be contacted by the NHS when you are due a spring booster. However, you can book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment online for your spring booster if you are eligible.

If you think you are eligible for a fourth jab but have not received your letter, and it has been six months since your last booster then contact your GP.

Who is eligible for a fourth jab?

Those who are eligible for a spring booster jab will receive a letter through the post that will contain full details of their appointment.

If the appointment is not suitable, details for rescheduling will also be available on the letter.

At the moment the criteria that is being applied to determine those eligible for a second booster are:

  • Those who will be 75 years old by 30/6/2022;
  • Some adults in identified clinical risk groups.
  • Individuals aged 12 years and over who have a weakened immune system

More information on why certain individuals are being offered a second booster vaccine can be found on the official NHS Scotland website.

Before you receive your second jab, you will need the two primary doses, as well as the first booster.

Those eligible for the first booster dose are:

  • Anyone aged 16 and over;
  • children and young people aged 12 to 15 years who are severely immunosuppressed and who have had a third primary dose;
  • children and young people aged 12 to 15 who are in an identified clinical risk group or who are a household contact of someone who is immunosuppressed.
  • Boosters will only be given 12 weeks after the previous dose. This should be taken into account when making an appointment.

The spring booster dose will usually be offered around 6 months after their last dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

However, some may be offered their booster sooner than this. Certain people may be offered their fourth jab at least three months after their last dose to help protect them against any increases in coronavirus infections.

How many doses do I need?

At the moment, most people have been asked to get the two primary doses as well as a booster.

However, a fourth jab (second booster) is being offered to those who are vulnerable to help improve their protection against the virus.

While there have been no official announcements as of yet, there have been discussions of people being offered what would be a third  booster jab along with their flu vaccine in the autumn of 2022.
