People aged over 18 years are now being offered booster jabs.

You don’t need to do anything; the NHS will be in touch as soon as you are eligible, starting with those who are at greatest risk.

If you’ve already booked your ‘booster’ appointment, please keep it,  so we can offer more people a COVID-19 booster vaccination as soon as we can. For more information see GOV.UK.

What you can do to help

You can really help us by doing the following:

  • Always wear a face mask in NHS buildings.
  • Please remain vigilant with hand hygiene and social distancing, and wear a face mask in shops, on public transport and in crowded places, even when you’ve had your vaccine.
  • Following national guidelines for the public (see GOV.UK).

About the national booking system

If the NHS has asked you book your jab at a Vaccination Centre, you can log on to the national booking service at to book your jab. You will need to provide your name, date of birth, postcode and ideally your NHS number.

If you're unable to book online, you can call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm, seven days a week, or you can get someone to do this for you. The phone line has interpreters and a British Sign Language facility on request.

As part of the booking process, you will be asked to:
• have two doses of the coronavirus vaccination at two appointments;
• book both appointments at the same time;
• if you've had both doses and are eligible for a booster jab, you can book this three months after your second dose.

You will be asked to provide details of your identity at the time of booking, when you arrive for your appointment and before you are vaccinated.

The NHS will let you know when it's your turn to book your jab.

If you are unable to leave the house to travel to where you are offered an appointment and cannot arrange for someone to help you, your local NHS services will be in contact with you.

If you receive a letter and already have an appointment booked to have your vaccine, you don’t need to do anything, just attend your scheduled appointment.
