Coronavirus vaccinations

Who can get vaccinated?

This winter, the NHS will be providing extra doses of the COVID vaccines to certain groups as well as first and second doses.

Are you aged 12 to 15?

Those aged 12 to 15-year-olds are being offered a single dose vaccine through their school.

Booster vaccines

Book online if you've been contacted.

You can book your COVID-19 booster vaccine dose online if you have been contacted by the NHS and you:

  • Are aged 50 and over
  • Are aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts you at high risk from COVID-19
  • Had your second dose at least 6 months ago

Please wait to be contacted by the NHS before booking your booster dose.

First and second doses

Those aged 16 or 17 who are eligible for the first dose of their vaccine can just walk into any of our vaccination sites, which are offering Pfizer.

Please note at this time you cannot book through the national booking system, it is walk in appointments only.

People aged 18 and over can book a covid vaccination through the NHS website or walk-in on the day.

  • You don't need to be registered with a GP to go to a walk-in
  • All vaccines are free of charge.

Guarantee your slot

You can guarantee a vaccine slot by booking your appointment.

In addition to the walk-in centres the NHS will send out letters inviting eligible people who have not yet been vaccinated to book their vaccine appointment.
