Spring boosters 2023
Eligible patients will be contacted and invited to book into our clinic.
As a precautionary measure, JCVI advises that an extra booster vaccine dose in spring 2023 should be offered to:
Immunosuppressed is classified as:
|Immunosuppression due to disease or treatment, including patients undergoing chemotherapy leading to immunosuppression, patients undergoing radical radiotherapy, solid organ transplant recipients, bone marrow or stem cell transplant recipients, HIV infection at all stages, multiple myeloma or genetic disorders affecting the immune system (e.g.
IRAK-4, NEMO, complement disorder, SCID).
|Individuals who are receiving immunosuppressive or immunomodulating biological therapy including, but not limited to, anti-TNF, alemtuzumab, ofatumumab, rituximab, patients receiving protein kinase inhibitors or PARP inhibitors, and individuals treated with steroid sparing agents such as cyclophosphamide and mycophenolate mofetil.|
|Individuals treated with or likely to be treated with systemic steroids for more than a month at a dose equivalent to prednisolone at 20mg or more per day for adults.
Anyone with a history of haematological malignancy, including leukaemia, lymphoma, and myeloma.
|Those who require long term immunosuppressive treatment for conditions including, but not limited to, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, scleroderma and psoriasis.|
What vaccine will you be giving?
Currently we have supply for the Sanofi vaccine. We do not have control over which vaccine we get delivered.
The Sanofi vaccine contains an adjuvant (a chemical used to improve the immune response to the virus). This vaccine will only be oferred to older people, who may respond less well to vaccines.
The adjuvant in the COVID-19 vaccine is similar to the one used in the flu vaccine which is routinely given to over 65 year olds. You can read about vaccine ingredients at here
More information on the spring booster can be found here
What side effects can I expect?
As with all vaccines, you will have pain at the injection site, possible a fever, headache and general aches/feeling fluy.
