COVID-19 booster jabs are now being offered to those aged 40 and over from today, Monday 22 November.
The booster vaccine is designed to improve protection from the virus after having had the first two doses.
You can book your COVID-19 booster dose online here if it has been five months since your second dose, or six months for frontline health and social care workers.
You'll be offered an appointment at least six months after your second dose.
You must be aged 40 and over, or aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts you at high risk.
You can get your booster dose at a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site if you had your second dose at least six months ago.
Booster jabs are currently available at the Greendale Vaccination Centre, Exeter University, and the English Riviera Centre in Torquay.
You must be either aged 40 or over.
If you're aged 16 and over and have a health condition that puts you at high risk, you'll need an invitation letter or letter from your doctor.
If you're a frontline health or social care worker, you'll need to bring proof of your employment.
