Getting a COVID-19 vaccination

Letters and emails will be dispatched to those eligible for the spring vaccination, including appointment time, date and location.

COVID-19 vaccination is an important part of protecting yourself if you're at increased risk from severe COVID-19.

If you received your last dose at home, you will be contacted by the vaccine programme to arrange your booster.

If you did not receive your last dose at home but are now considered housebound, you should email or call 111 to register a home visit. The phone line is open from 9:30am until 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.

If you have recently moved into residential care and are now living in a care home, your care home will arrange a visit from the vaccination team.

You should be told if you or your child are at increased risk from COVID-19 due to immunosuppression.

You may be at increased risk from COVID-19 if you have a health condition, such as:

  • a weakened immune system, due to a medical treatment (such as steroid medicine, biological therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy), a condition (such as leukaemia), a genetic condition or from having an organ or bone marrow transplant

  • problems with the spleen, having no spleen or having a condition that can affect the spleen (such as sickle cell disease)
