Need a Covid vaccine? Choose where and when to get yours

Getting vaccinated is the best way of keeping ourselves and our family and friends safe from Covid.

When to get your follow up vaccines: 

  • 2nd dose: 12-17 years at 12 weeks from 1st vaccine, 18 years and over at 8 weeks from 1st vaccine
  • Booster vaccine: everyone aged 16 and above is eligible 3 months (91 days) from your 2nd vaccine and can pre-book an appointment from 2 months (61 days)

No NHS number or ID is required but it does speed things up if you do have your NHS number with you. 

Overseas visitors to England, including anyone living in the UK without permission, can also get the COVID-19 vaccine for free.  

Vaccinations for 12 to 15-year-olds at Churchill Square 

Young people aged 12 to 15 attending with their parent or carer can get their first and second vaccinations at Churchill Square vaccination centre, or through their school.

The National Booking Service will only offer appointments from 12 weeks after your first dose. To get your second dose from 8 weeks, please take a letter from a GP that says you’re eligible for a second dose from 8 weeks.
