Second booster dose

You should get a second booster if you are:

How long to wait before getting a second booster

You can get your second booster at least 4 months (at least 120 days) after your first booster.

If you have had COVID-19 since your first booster, wait at least 4 months after you tested positive or from when your symptoms started.

65 or older – vaccine doses

If you are 65 or older, your second booster should be your fourth vaccine dose.

Why you may need a second booster

You may be more at risk of serious illness from COVID-19 if you have a weak immune system or are aged 65 or older.

This is because:

  • the protection from previous doses may weaken with time
  • you may be at greater risk of severe illness
  • your immune system may not respond as strongly to vaccination

Data from other countries shows that a second booster will give you extra protection from COVID-19. A second booster can prevent the possibility of hospitalisation or death from COVID-19 illness.

If you have a weak immune system

Your GP or hospital consultant may recommend a second booster if you have a weak immune system.
