Tthe UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) warned the public of a potentially “difficult winter”, as this is when respiratory diseases are at their most rampant.

There are also fears surrounding influenza (flu) as it is theorised that the public may have developed a lowered tolerance to it, following the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns.

A “twindemic” could potentially be on the horizon if no action is taken by members of the public.

A “twindemic” entails two different diseases being spread on a pandemic level at the same time. In this case, flu and COVID-19.

We’ve put this article together to give you everything you’ll need to know about getting your vaccinations.

As well as this, a pairing of flu and COVID-19 could be deadly, especially to those who are considered high-risk.

How to get a COVID-19 vaccination

There are several different ways of going about getting a vaccine. First of all, you can simply visit an NHS walk-in centre and get a vaccine without an appointment - you may have to queue for some time, however.

You are eligible to receive a seasonal booster jab if you are:

  • aged 65 or over
  • pregnant
  • aged 5 and over and at high risk due to a health condition
  • aged 5 and over and at high risk because of a weakened immune system
  • aged 5 and over and live with someone who has a weakened immune system
  • aged 16 and over and a carer, either paid or unpaid
  • living or working in a care home for older people
  • a frontline health and social care worker

You can also book an appointment if this method doesn’t work for you via the NHS’ booking system.

You won’t need to bring anything - just a form of identification, but you may not be asked for it.
