Somerset COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

NHS COVID-19 vaccinations have saved countless lives, kept tens of thousands of people out of hospital, and helped us to live with the virus without fear or restrictions.


This year’s autumn 2023 COVID-19 vaccine programmes will now rollout from 18 September in England, as a precautionary measure following the identification of a new COVID-19 variant.

The decision means those most at risk from winter illness – including people in care homes, the clinically vulnerable, those aged 65 and over, health and social care staff, and carers – will be able to access a COVID-19 and flu vaccines from 11 September.

Who is eligible?

Those eligible for an autumn COVID-19 vaccine include:

  1. residents in a care home (now for all CHs)
  2. all adults aged 65 years and over
  3. persons aged 6 months to 64 years in a clinical risk group, as laid out in the Green Book, chapter 14a COVID-19 chapter (Green Book)
  4. pregnant women
  5. frontline health and social care workers
  6. persons aged 12 to 64 years who are household contacts (as defined in the Green Book) of people with immunosuppression
  7. persons aged 16 to 64 years who are carers (as defined in the Green Book) and staff working in care homes for older adults.
