Covid 19 Vaccination

NHS in Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland (LLR) has begun the next phase of Covid-19 vaccinations in an effort to protect those whose immunity is most likely to have already reduced since their autumn vaccine.

The spring vaccination programme enables those most in need of an extra boost to their immunity to get topped up. The eligible cohorts this spring includes residents in care homes for older people, those aged 75 and over and immunosuppressed individuals aged 6 months and over.

Housebound patients and those living in care homes will be amongst the first to receive their top-ups with teams starting to administer vaccines began this week on Monday 15 April. They will continue to vaccinate in care homes across LLR throughout May and June.
