Cheshire East Council is urging older and more vulnerable residents to take up the offer of a further Covid-19 booster vaccine.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), as part of its latest review of the UK vaccination programme, has recommended an additional spring booster dose for our most vulnerable individuals.
People aged 75 years and older, residents in care homes for older people, and those individuals aged 12 and over with weakened immune systems, will be offered a spring booster of coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine.
These groups of people are at higher risk of developing severe Covid-19. Protection from the vaccine may be lower and may decline more quickly in these people. If the number of infections increases over the summer, this booster should help to reduce their risk of developing serious illness and being admitted to hospital with Covid-19.
Professor Rod Thomson, public health consultant at Cheshire East Council, said: “The pandemic isn’t over and with Covid-19 case numbers still high across all age groups, it is really important that those eligible for this booster come forward as soon as they are invited.
“We know the vaccine is safe, effective and provides the best protection against serious illness from Covid-19.”
Those eligible for the spring booster will be contacted by the NHS when it is their turn to receive the vaccine. Once invited, they will be able to book their appointment online via NHS or by calling 119. Anyone in these groups will only be able to book an appointment for six months from the date of their last vaccination.
For details of local walk-in Covid-19 vaccination clinics, offering first, second and booster jabs, please visit the NHS website at: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/. Residents can also book an appointment via the NHS website or by calling 119.
A vaccine programme has also started for healthy 5 to 11-year-old children. Parents will receive information offering them the chance to make an appointment for their child to be vaccinated. These appointments will be available from April over the Easter holidays and further slots will become available later.

Funding available for domestic abuse and sexual violence support groups
Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, John Dwyer, is calling for expressions of interest in funding from groups and organisations who support victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence.
The Ministry of Justice has extended funding for domestic abuse and sexual violence services in communities, meaning Police and Crime Commissioners are able to commission local organisations to deliver services for victims.
In order to distribute the funding effectively, Commissioners are required to advertise this opportunity widely and complete a needs assessment so they have the most up to date picture of local needs.
John Dwyer, Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire said:
“I’m really pleased that we’ll have this funding available to us. Protecting vulnerable and at-risk people and delivering justice for victims are priorities in my Police and Crime Plan.
“With input from local organisations with specialist knowledge we’ll be able to more effectively target support towards vulnerable victims, helping them on the road to recovery and breaking the cycle of domestic abuse and sexual violence.
“If you are an organisation in Cheshire who fits the bill here, even if you haven’t worked with the Commissioner’s Office before, I want to hear from you. Please do get in touch with my team as soon as you can.”
Interested organisations do not need to be a registered charity, a charitable incorporated organisation, or a social enterprise to be eligible for the funding. However, they must be able to demonstrate a proven track record of supporting victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence, including male victims, disabled people, and people from the LGBT+ and BAME communities.
Organisations bidding for funds will have to show evidence of the need for additional funds and go through a due diligence process. Successful applicants will have to feed back on how the funding has enhanced their work with victims to the Commissioner’s office and the Ministry of Justice.
Needs assessment forms must be completed by 5pm on Friday 22 April and are available upon an expression of interest to the Commissioner’s commissioning team:
