The booster campaign launched last month on 16 Sept and is open to frontline health and care workers as well as identifying other eligible patients. NHS England has claimed that it will get in touch with patients as and when they become eligible.
Booster jabs are recommended as a ‘top up’ for those who received a second dose over six months ago.
Dr Richard Fieldhouse, a GP locum and chair of NASGP said: “Thanks to this advice, I have just been able to get my booster vaccine! It still amazes me that, even as a leading national organisation for GPs with over 6k subscribers we’re in daily contact with, we have to rely on members rather than government to disseminate essential occupational health information.
