Covid-19 vaccinations

Covid-19 vaccinations

Covid-19 vaccines are safe and effective. They give you the best protection against Covid-19.

Eligibility

The Covid-19 vaccination programme offers:

  • First and second doses for people aged 5 and over
  • Boosters for people aged 16 years old and over
  • Third doses (as part of their primary course) and boosters for people with a weakened immune system aged 12 years old and over
  • A seasonal booster (autumn booster) for people aged 50 years and older, residents in care homes for older people, those aged 5 years and over in a clinical risk group, and health and social care staff

You can book in for a Covid-19 vaccine through the NHS website, by calling 119, or by using a walk-in vaccination centre. We will make announcements on additional vaccination opportunities in Wokingham Borough as they become available.

You do not need to be registered with a GP, show your immigration status, or have an NHS number to get the vaccine. If you can, bring your NHS number and wear a face covering.

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.
