You can get the Covid-19 vaccine if you're aged 16 or over.
You can book your Covid-19 vaccination appointment, or alternatively you can visit a walk in centre.
Please note that vaccinations are free of charge and only available through the NHS. Anyone who claims to be able to provide you with a vaccine for a fee is likely to be committing a crime and should be reported to the Police online or by calling 112. The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine.
Spring booster vaccinations
People aged 75 and over, residents in care homes for older adults and people aged 5 and over with weakened immune systems are being offered an additional COVID vaccination this spring.
Protection from the vaccines decreases over time, particularly in older people or those with weakened immune systems. The extra vaccination is to help make sure those at greatest risk continue to have high levels of protection against the virus and help prevent them from becoming seriously ill or needing hospital care.
Eligible people will be invited to book an appointment by the NHS or can use the National Booking Service to book an appointment from 5 April. Appointments start from 17 April and will be available until the end of June.
Anyone aged 5 and over who has not yet had their first or second COVID vaccination can also get them during this time. After 30 June, first and second vaccinations will only be offered to those at higher risk of severe COVID and only available during the seasonal campaigns. Please visit www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination to book an appointment or call 119.
