Norfolk and Waveney residents are urged to get their spring COVID-19 vaccination before the end of June

20th June 2024

NHS Norfolk and Waveney are encouraging eligible people to get their spring COVID-19 vaccine as this season’s vaccination programme enters its final stage.

People aged 75 and over by 30 June 2024, those living in care homes for older adults, and people with a weakened immune system are eligible for a spring COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is offered to these groups of people because they are more at risk than others of getting severely ill from the disease.

Across Norfolk and Waveney, over 116,000 eligible residents have already had the vaccine but there are still some who haven’t yet come forward.

Kate Keeling, Head of Immunisations & Inclusion Health at NHS Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care Board said: “We are really pleased with the number of our residents who have already had their vaccine this season.

“With less than two weeks left before the spring COVID-19 vaccination offer ends, we are urging our residents who are eligible to get their jab.”

“The vaccine could prevent you from getting seriously ill with the virus, so if you’ve been invited, please get booked in before the end of June. It’s the safest and most effective way of protecting yourself from COVID-19 and it will help you to recover more quickly if you catch the virus.”

Getting the spring COVID-19 vaccine is easy and free – those eligible can book via the National Booking System at or by calling 119.
