The Department and NHS England are working closely with regional and local systems to ensure we have the appropriate resourcing available for a potential booster campaign. Whilst we are planning for several potential scenarios, final decisions on the timing and scope of the booster programme will not be taken until later this year, in line with results from key clinical studies and advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.
