Anyone, who hasn’t already had their first or second COVID-19 vaccination, booster or Spring booster for over 75s can still get vaccinated at a walk-in clinic or by booking through the NHS booking service ( or call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week). More details on eligibility on the NHS website vaccination page.
COVID vaccinations for children
All children aged 5-11 continue to be offered vaccination against Covid-19 vaccine and this parents are urged to get their child vaccinated in time for the summer when cases might increase.
Two doses of the vaccine (at least 12 weeks apart) should give the child long-lasting protection against serious complications of infection and some protection from mild symptoms. To book an appointment, please visit https://www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination or call 119.
The NHS wants to support you to make an informed choice with more information available here COVID-19: A guide for parents of children aged 5 to 11 (publishing.service.gov.uk)
If you do not know your child’s NHS number you can get it:
- by checking your child’s personal health record (the red book given to you when your child was born)
- by checking any NHS letters, prescriptions or test results you may have received for your child
- by going to the NHS.UK website
- by asking your GP practice to help you
Transport for vaccination:
- A volunteer driver lift service is available for anyone who cannot get to their vaccination appointments.
- The patient must be aware that this is at their own risk (these are volunteers organised through the Patient Particiption Group and so not DBS or insurance-checked). Please note there is no fee for this service.
- To request this service please email email@example.com with your full name, full address with post code, telephone number(s) including mobile number, and time and place of vaccination appointment.
General information on the Coronavirus vaccination can be found on the NHS website vaccination page.
