Covid booster appointments being sent to people in the fourth priority group

Fri, 23 Sep 2022


Appointments are now being sent out to all people in the Priority Four cohort who are due to receive an Autumn Booster dose of the Covid-19 vaccination.

Cohort four includes all adults aged over 70, and adults aged between 18 and 69 who are in a high-risk group with underlying medical health conditions which makes them more vulnerable to becoming ill as a result of Covid-19. The prioritisation is in line with guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

To be eligible to receive the booster vaccination, an adult in this group must:

  • Have either completed their primary course of the vaccine or received a booster at least three months ago
  • Not have had a positive test for Covid-19 within the previous 28 days
  • Be able to provide consent for themselves or be in possession of a Best Interest Form provided by their GP*

The Covid-19 Vaccination Team has begun sending appointments to those individuals in cohort four either by email or letter. People can also book and manage their Covid-19 vaccination appointments online at https://services.gov.im/vaccines-and-boosters/ and change their appointment to a different time slot if they need to. To do this, they will need to input their name, date of birth and NHS number which can be found on any medical letter they may have received from Manx Care or their GP. Alternatively, they can email vaccinations@gov.im or call 111 to book an appointment.
