An NHS trust is urging Epping Forest and Harlow people to boost their immunity for 2022 by booking a Covid jab.

Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust says pre-bookable Covid-19 vaccination appointments and walk-in slots are available across Essex for early 2022.

From January 2, 2022, those yet to have a jab, who need their next one, or are due for a booster, now is the time to act.

There are plenty of pre-bookable and walk-in appointments available over the coming weeks for:

• First doses for anyone or their child who is 12 years old or over

• Second doses for those 12 years old or over

• Booster doses for anyone who is 18 years old or over (boosters are given 12 weeks after the second dose)

People who are 18 years old or over and have only had their first dose can have their second eight weeks after your first vaccination. If you’re aged 12 to 17, you are eligible for your second dose 12 weeks after your first vaccine dose.

Some people are eligible for a third primary dose of vaccine and can bring along their GP or consultant letter if this applies to you.

To book an appointment, enter your postcode on the NHS website to find the centre nearest to you.
