Make sure you’ve had Covid booster for overseas travel this summer

The NHS in South-east London is urging more people to get Covid boosters.

Their message is: It’s never too late for you to come forward for your first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine and you may need it to travel overseas this summer as some countries still demand evidence of a jab.

If you have had your second dose more than three months ago, you are eligible, while those over 75, living in care homes or with a weakened immune system are also eligible for an additional booster this spring/summer.

Walk-in clinics, as well as booked appointments are still available.

The UK Health Security Agency says that a booster jab prevents around 75 per cent of people getting Covid symptoms.

As it stands, being fully vaccinated against Covid-19 means fewer requirements for testing or other checks in many of the most popular holiday destinations including France, Spain and Portugal.

It could mean less admin and more time for relaxing. The same is true for many countries that are relevant to residents of South-east London who may be considering visiting family members in other countries.
