Coronavirus (COVID-19): Vaccinations

We are currently vaccinating patients against coronavirus (COVID-19) in line with the  Government's agreed priority groups (https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/). 

If you are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine you can book an appointment using the  national booking system on the NHS website (https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/) or by calling 119 if you don't have access to the internet.

You can book your appointment yourself - you don't need to wait to be contacted by the NHS. 

Please do not contact the hospital or your GP practice to ask when you can have it. 

If you already have an appointment over the coming weeks, whether for your first or second dose, this remains in place and it's really important that you attend it as planned. 

The vaccines are safe and effective.

The first dose of both the Pfizer/BioNTech and Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine offer good levels of protection, but to get maximum protection everyone will need to get a second dose, so we are urging people to come back for their appointment. 

Whilst this vaccination programme is well underway, coronavirus remains real and we must all continue to play our part in following all local and national guidance to keep ourselves safe and stop the virus spreading.

Please remember to practice good hand hygiene, wear a face mask in public spaces and observe social distancing at all times.
