Reply To: COVID Vaccine Boosters for Independent SLTs working in the community

Dear members, 

I have sought clarification from RCSLT in regards to the booster programme and this is the guidance provided:

The Government on their website have been quite clear from the start that anyone that was prioritised in round one of the initial vaccination programme (this includes key workers/healthcare staff) are prioritised in the initial rounds of booster vaccinations, so this should mean that all SLT’s are eligible for the booster (as long as they had their 2nd dose more than 6 months ago).

The RCSLT has updated their letter for key workers to include booster vaccinations, this is available on the RCSLT website via the link below:

I hope this helps everyone
