Updated 18 July

Everyone aged 18 or older should get both their vaccinations as soon as possible.

You must leave an eight-week gap before getting your second dose.

Where and how to get your COVID-19 vaccination

You can:

Please bring one form of ID (photo ID not required) and your NHS number, if you have them.

Overseas visitors to England, including anyone living in the UK without permission, can also get the COVID-19 vaccine for free. You don’t need an NHS number but we will need a way to contact you (phone number or email).

Second doses

If you have had your first vaccine, but yet to have your second and its now eight weeks since your first vaccination, now is the time to arrange it. You can book online or call 119, or visit one of our walk in sessions for second doses today.

While the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine gives a good immunity to the virus, getting your second dose is vital to make sure you have the highest level of protection.
