Spring Covid booster

Bazmack48 profile image

I have had my first, second and booster jabs the same time as my wife. Today I received text saying it is time for my spring booster. Wife rang to make a joint appointment, both over 70, to be told that I am immune compromised so I am only entitled to spring booster. I have never been treated any differently before for jabs. Anyone else been offered spring booster because they are coeliac?

The routine spring boosters are for over 75s - so someone thinks you are special! I haven't heard of boosters for coeliac though - I'd grab it if offered.

Thank you for the reply. Not yet over 75, wife was told that because I have CD I am classed as extremely vulnerable, strange this is the first time I have been treated this way. Being jabbed in the morning.

Hi I have CD too and am on the immune compromised list, when talking to my gp they couldn't see any reason why that should be but I had letters from the gov telling me to get booked and jabbed etc. I'm 36 and as far as I'm aware CD is the only thing I have wrong with me otherwise pretty much never get ill, rarely ever catch any of the colds or bugs that go round so the only thing I could put it down to was that I have CD I guess that must be the case, that said I've not been told to book for a spring booster yet

I am 77 and coeliac, husband 76 (not coeliac) we were both called for Spring boosters and had them a week ago. I was told that there would probably be an Autumn booster for immune compromised people such as me, but think it will also be offered due to age! I was diagnosed at 46 and my then GP usually offered me the annual flu jab as I had CD. I am glad to say that I had my worst reaction (aches and shivers, no temperature) to this latest vaccination, which tells me my immune system is kicking in and doing its job!

Thank you for your reply. I had Moderna jab this morning. It is the first time I had to fill out a questionable. You have been Coeliac for a long time, I was only diagnosed four years ago at age 70. Enjoy your day.
