Covid-19 vaccines

People aged 20-24 currently have the highest COVID 19 infection rate in England. Watch the NHS - Young Covid video where young people share their experiences of getting Covid and the importance of vaccination.

Book a vaccine

Anyone aged over 18 can book a vaccine to protect you, your loved ones and your community. Book or manage your appointment on the NHS website.  The vaccines are safe and effective and they are your best protection against becoming seriously ill from the virus.

You need to:

  • book 2 appointments for 2 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine
  • get the 2nd dose 8 to 12 weeks after getting your 1st dose
If you've had your first dose at a walk-in vaccination centre, you can book your 2nd dose using this service. You'll need to wait 24 hours after your first dose before you can book.

If you've had a positive COVID-19 test, you should wait four weeks from the date you had the test before you book an appointment.

If you're under 40, you'll only be shown appointments for the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines.

If you're 40 or over, you'll be asked if you're pregnant. This is to make sure people who are pregnant are only shown appointments for the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines.
