How can I get the vaccine?

It’s never too late to get vaccinated (your first, second or third/booster dose) and you don’t need to wait for an appointment.  

You can book or manage an appointment for your 1st, 2nd, 3rd or booster dose on the NHS website, or by calling 119.  You can find details of walk-in and pop-up clinics in your local area here

Q&As

Asked 14 Jun

Will it give me Covid?

You can’t catch Covid from the vaccine. It may take a few weeks for your body to build up protection against the virus, but it will reduce your chances of becoming seriously ill. You need to have both doses for maximum protection.

How was it made so quickly?

The Covid vaccines have been developed, assessed and independently approved using the same processes that would normally be used to develop a vaccine. They have been through clinical trials involving tens of thousands of volunteers, a testing process which tells us they are safe and effective.

Asked 14 Jun

How long does protection last?

It’s too soon to know how long protection will last, but it’s thought to be at least 6 months and possibly longer. Booster doses may be needed to maintain protection for you and those around you, or to fight new variants of the virus.
