Early Booster jab for some people with MS

8 November 2021

Across the UK, people with MS who’ve already been fully vaccinated will be offered a booster jab. This will usually be timed for at least 6 months after your second jab.

The NHS has been getting in touch to arrange it. You might be invited to have their flu jab at the same time.

Friends, family and colleagues might also be able to get a booster jab. It’s also being offered to everyone over 50 and adults who live with someone who is immunosuppressed.

A booster could help keep up the protection that vaccines give against Covid-19, which decreases over time. That extra protection could be particularly important as we go into the winter months.

Some people with MS may be eligible to have a Covid-19 booster jab only 4 or 5 months after their initial doses.

A quicker booster might be helpful if, for example, you and your MS team are discussing the timing of immunosuppressive treatment.
