Boost Your Immunity This Winter

03 November 2021

The ‘Boost your Immunity this Winter’ campaign highlights the importance of the flu vaccine programme and the COVID-19 vaccine programme in helping to stop the spread of flu and COVID-19, and reducing hospital-related admissions for both. This is particularly important at this time when the health service is under severe strain.

The message is clear – if you’re eligible for either the flu vaccine, COVID-19 vaccine, or both, boost your immunity this winter and take up the offer when invited.

Covid-19 Booster Dose Programme

The wider NI COVID-19 booster dose programme began in October for those eligible. This includes:

  • Frontline health and social care staff

The roll-out will be on phased basis, as the booster vaccine dose is to be offered no earlier than six months after receipt of the second dose.
