If anyone has an appointment at a clinic they cannot manage, if they call the national enquiry line 0800 030 8013 or the local enquiry line 0300 790 6296, they will be able to change.

COVID-19 immunity wanes over time, but a booster can reduce your risk of symptomatic infection by over 80 per cent - so it's more than a simple top-up, it provides protection you still need.

The online appointment booking portal can be found at NHS Inform and allows people to choose their own date and venue in advance. 

If you have don't have internet access or you need help, call the national vaccination helpline on 0800 030 8013. 

More information can be found at NHS Inform, or speak to your vaccinator who can answer any questions.

 

What if I've recently had Covid-19?

If you are 18 or over and have recently had a confirmed COVID-19 infection, you should wait four weeks from date of test or first symptoms (whichever is earlier) to get the vaccine.

Under 18s who have recently had a confirmed COVID-19 infection should wait 4 to 12 weeks from date of test or first symptoms (whichever is earlier) to get the vaccine.
