If you have not received an appointment, or were unable to accept one due to illness, self-isolating or any other reason, it is not too late. All those in priority groups 1-4 should now have been offered a Covid vaccination. That includes all people over the age of 70, anyone who is clinically extremely vulnerable, frontline health and social care workers, care home residents and staff.
To arrange an appointment to be vaccinated against Covid, you just need to contact the NHS.
- The easiest way to arrange a vaccination is through the national booking service which can be accessed at nhs.uk/covid-vaccination. People who do not know their NHS number can still book an appointment through the national system but will only be given an appointment if they are in the top four priority groups.
- The system allows patients to choose a time slot and location that suits them.
- Call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm, seven days a week, if you cannot book online.
- You can also call your GP practice if you cannot find a suitable and convenient slot online.
- Appointments are staggered to allow for social distancing and people are urged not to turn up early to avoid queues.
