Immunosuppressed - Am I eligible for the COVID Spring Booster Vaccine 2024?

People at increased risk from severe illness can get the spring COVID-19 vaccine. This includes those with a weakened immune system.

People with a weakened immune system include:

  • those who have or previously had a blood cancer, such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma
  • organ, bone marrow or stem cell transplant recipients
  • people who have HIV infection at all stages
  • people who have a genetic disorder affecting the immune system
  • those undergoing a treatment such as steroid medicine, biological therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy (including those whose treatment ended up to 6 months ago)
  • people who take certain medications that increase your risk of infection, such as azathioprine, dexamethasone, prednisolone, ciclosporin or mycophenalate (depending on your dosage)
  • recipients of long-term immunosuppressive treatment for conditions such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, scleroderma and psoriasis

This list is a summary and does not cover everything

If eligible, you do not need to wait for an invitation to book your vaccine - visit the NHS App, the NHS website or call 119 for free.
