Covid-19 vaccinations

Covid-19 vaccinations

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

  • Everyone aged five and older can get a first and second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine
  • People aged 16 and older, and some children aged 12 to 15, can also get a booster dose
  • People aged 12 and older who had a severely weakened immune system when they had their first two doses, will be offered a third dose and a booster (fourth dose)
  • People aged 75 and older, people who live in care homes for older people, and people aged 12 and over who have a weakened immune system, will be offered a spring booster

You can book in for a Covid-19 vaccine through the NHS website, by calling 119, or by using a walk-in vaccination centre. Vaccines are provided at mass vaccination sites, community pharmacies, walk-in centres including the Wokingham Library, and the Health on the Move vaccination bus when it is here in the Borough.

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 cannot find your NHS number, contact your local GP surgery, or attend a walk-in centre to get your vaccine.

Walk-in vaccine centre at Wokingham Library

There is a dedicated Covid-19 vaccine centre at Wokingham Library (Denmark Street, Wokingham, RG40 2BB) to help make access to the vaccine easier for residents.

There will be a regular review of the site to understand needs, so we are encouraging residents to make good use of the facility. It will next be open on the following dates:

  • Friday 24 June (9.30am-4.30pm) - spring boosters for over 75s and immunosuppressed people, second (if Moderna was the first dose) and booster doses for over 18s (Moderna)
  • Saturday 25 June (9.30am-4.30pm) - spring boosters for over 75s and immunosuppressed people, second (if Moderna was the first dose) and booster doses for over 18s (Moderna)
  • Sunday 26 June (10.30am-4.30pm) - First doses for 5-11 year olds (Pfizer)        

We recommend that you book an appointment in advance through the National Booking Service or by calling 119, but you can also just walk-in. Please bring your NHS number if you have it, and wear a face covering.

Visitors travelling by car can park at Denmark Street Car Park, and more parking options are available across the town. Usual fees apply.

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.
