Dr Emilia Crighton, Deputy Director for Public Well being at NHS Better Glasgow and Clyde, mentioned: “Covid-19 continues to flow into and it stays essential that these most susceptible to extreme results from the virus shield themselves by getting their spring booster vaccination. Immunity from the vaccine wanes over time and the booster supplies vital further safety.

“I’d urge anybody aged 75 or over, or anybody aged 12 or over who’s severely immunosuppressed to return ahead for his or her spring booster earlier than the top of June in the event that they haven’t already achieved so.

 “When you have missed yours for any motive then you possibly can rearrange it on-line at NHS Inform or by calling the helpline on 0800 030 8013 seven days every week between 8am and 8pm. Alternatively, you possibly can go to certainly one of our drop-in clinics at the moment working. The main points of which might be discovered on our web site.”

Well being Secretary Humza Yousaf mentioned: “Vaccination has been our handiest instrument towards coronavirus and I’m happy so many individuals have come ahead for his or her spring booster. Nearly 90% of over 75s and round two thirds of those that are aged over 12 and are immunosuppressed have already taken up the provide.

“We’re seeing greater numbers of infections throughout our communities in the meanwhile which is why booster vaccination is required to keep up the perfect safety towards COVID-19 for these at highest threat. We proceed to encourage everybody to obtain the doses they’re eligible for as and after they develop into out there.”
