Coronavirus (Covid-19)


Vaccination remains our best defence against Covid-19, and we urge you to get your autumn/winter booster to help protect yourself and others. 

Getting your Covid-19 booster vaccination 

A comprehensive Covid-19 programme led by Greater Manchester’s GPs, pharmacies and hospitals will be delivered in local communities from September 2022.

Covid-19 autumn boosters will be available to:

  • residents in a care home, for older adults, and staff working in care homes for older adults
  • frontline health and social care workers
  • all adults aged 50 years and over (beginning with those 75 and over or with a weakened immune system)
  • those aged 5 to 49 years in a clinical risk group, including pregnant women
  • those aged 5 to 49 years who are household contacts of people with immunosuppression
  • those aged 16 to 49 years who are carers

Eligible Trafford people may receive a letter from the NHS advising them how to book. If you prefer to have your vaccine with your local GP, you can instead choose to wait a short time to receive an invite and a link to book an appointment from a GP practice once appointments are available.

The NHS is inviting eligible people when it’s their turn to come forward. If people believe they are eligible because they have a weakened immune system, for example, because of an underlying health condition, medication or because of a transplant, please see below for how to book.

To book your Covid-19 booster visit the NHS booking website or phone 119.

Walk-in vaccination sites, where you attend without an appointment, may be available but check the walk-in appointment website first.
