COVID-19 vaccination plans UK Sept 2022 – December 2022

UK government has announced plans to give everyone over age 50 and any other vulnerable group a booster vaccination this autumn.

Up to half may get a new Moderna vaccine that has been altered so that it is more effective against the latest omicron COVID variants, but supply is not yet guaranteed so numbers receiving this vaccine are not fixed.

Those who receive one of the earlier versions of the vaccine this autumn – Moderna or Pfizer – will still be well protected against severe symptoms but not so much against infection. Hopefully, infections will continue to fall rapidly throughout out August/September/October and onwards.
