Spring Covid Booster offered to over 75s

Published: 23 February 2022

Many people will view changes brought in by the Living with Covid Plan with concern, particularly the clinically vulnerable and the elderly.  With this in mind, the NHS will be offering a spring booster vaccination for these groups, and you can find out more here.

It is also recommended that those at highest risk speak to their GP for advice on how to ensure they stay protected and ways in which people can best help them.

Testing will be changing, as will the use of the Covid Pass.  From 1 April, the Government will:

  • Remove the current guidance on voluntary COVID-status certification in domestic settings and no longer recommend that certain venues use the NHS COVID Pass
  • No longer provide free universal symptomatic and asymptomatic testing for the general public in England
  • Remove every employer's health and safety requirement to consider COVID-19 in their risk assessments explicitly.
