How to book your Covid-19 vaccination

All adults over the age of 16 are now eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine. If you're aged 18 or over (or 17 and within 3 months of your 18th birthday), you can book in for it through the NHS website. Peopled aged 16 and 17 are encouraged to visit walk-in vaccination centres, where no booking is required.

Please note, you do not have to have a GP or an NHS number to get the vaccine. If you do not have an NHS number, please contact your local GP surgery or attend a Covid-19 vaccination walk-in centre to get your vaccine.

Update on vaccinations

Vaccine data is now publicly available on the Gov.uk website.

You can also find more information about Covid-19 vaccinations on the Berkshire Public Health website.

Vaccination scams

We are aware that some people are receiving suspicious calls, phishing emails and text messages offering the Covid-19 vaccination. The vaccine is only available through the NHS and it is free of charge - at no point will you be asked to pay.

  • The NHS will never ask you for your bank account or card details  
  • The NHS will never ask you for your PIN or banking password
  • The NHS will never arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine
  • The NHS will never ask you to prove your identity by sending copies of personal documents such as your passport, driving licence, bills or pay slips

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you are suspicious about an email you have received, forward it to report@phishing.gov.uk. Suspicious text messages should be forwarded to the number 7726 which is free of charge.

If you believe you are the victim of a fraud, please report this to Action Fraud as soon as possible by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting the Action Fraud website
