To book your vaccine
All vaccines are by appointment only. You can book on to any of the services listed below, but in line with government travel guidelines, please try to book close to your home or work base where possible. You will need to return to the same site for your second dose (12 weeks later) - please consider this when choosing a location.
Please bring your NHS number, ID badge (if you have one) and a payslip from within the past three months as proof of ID. If you cannot prove you are in the priority group, you will be refused a vaccine.
Please wear short sleeves or clothes which make having your jab easier, wear a face covering and observe social distancing. You must attend your appointment alone.
Please do not book an appointment if you have any coronavirus symptoms. If you have had a confirmed Covid-19 positive test you should book a slot that is at least 28 days after the positive test or 28 days after symptoms started.
