The new bivalent vaccine
Vaccines used to date are designed to target the original strain of COVID-19 and have remained effective at preventing severe illness, including against later variants such as Omicron. The NHS is the first healthcare system in the world to use the next generation, bivalent COVID-19 vaccine in our seasonal campaign, which target both Omicron and the original strain.
All available vaccines, including bivalent vaccines, provide good protection against severe illness from COVID-19 and have been approved for use by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). They’ve met the MHRA’s strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness.
Why do I need an Autumn booster?
More than 94% of people in England have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine – saving lives, helping tens of thousands to stay out of hospital, and enabling us to return to lives we knew before the pandemic began. However, the virus is still with us and is still making people very ill.
Viruses like COVID-19 spread much more easily in winter when we socialise indoors, so it’s important that everyone eligible tops up their protection with an autumn booster.
The aim is to protect the whole population and protect those at greatest risk from the virus against severe COVID-19 disease over winter. As well as protecting you and the people around you, vaccination also helps the NHS to take care of others by avoiding unnecessary hospital visits. This allows time and resources to be used elsewhere in winter.
