How to book your Covid-19 vaccination
All adults and young people over the age of 12 are now eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine and can book in for it through the NHS website.
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
The rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine is being delivered by the NHS. We are not responsible for running the vaccination programme, though we are offering support in any practical way we can.
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.
Who can get the Covid-19 vaccine?
If you're aged 12 or over, you are eligible for the vaccine. More information is available on the NHS website.
Covid-19 booster vaccine
The NHS is delivering the Covid-19 booster vaccine to all adults and young people aged 16 and over. This is to help top up the protection given from the first two doses.
If you are eligible for a booster, you will be able to book an appointment through the NHS national booking service once it's been two months since your second dose. There must be a three month gap between your second Covid vaccine and the booster jab which means some people will not be contacted until the New Year.
Most people can:
- Book a vaccination appointment online for an appointment at a vaccination centre or pharmacy
- Go to a walk-in vaccination site to get vaccinated without an appointment
- Wait to be contacted by a local NHS service such as a GP surgery and book an appointment with them
For more information, visit the Covid-19 booster vaccine page on the Berkshire West Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) website.
