    Booster doses for people aged 18 years and older

    If you are aged 18 years or older, you can have the Pfizer vaccine as a booster dose regardless of which vaccine you had for your first 2 doses.

    You can also receive the Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) vaccine as a booster dose if you:

    • can’t have the Pfizer vaccine for medical reasons

The COVID vaccines and influenza vaccines

It is as important this year as any to consider having a dose of the seasonal influenza vaccine. However, scheduling to have this and a dose of a COVID-19 vaccine on the same day is not recommended. Instead, you should plan on a minimal time between your vaccines of 14 days.

There are some circumstances in which your doctor may consider shortening the interval between these two vaccines. If you think this might apply to you plan an appointment with your GP to discuss your situation.
