Vaccinations - additional information
Children aged 12 to 15: Most children can get their COVID-19 vaccine at school or can book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment on the NHS website. Find out more about the COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 12 to 15 on the NHS website.
For booster vaccinations, please note: Most people will be offered a booster dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine or Moderna vaccine. This means your booster dose may be different from the vaccines you had for your 1st and 2nd doses. Some people may be offered a booster dose of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine if they cannot have the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccine.
Some venues may also be offering the free flu vaccination to those who are eligible, please ask at the venue. Find out if you are eligible for the free flu vaccination on the NHS website.
Please wear a face covering, when coming for your vaccination, unless you cannot wear one for a health or disability reason.
First and second (if it’s 8 weeks or more since your first dose) doses of the vaccination.

About the walk-in clinics
- Clinics will be on a first come, first served basis. There may be queues at busy times so people should come prepared for the weather and bring a drink of water. You will also need a mask or face covering.
- If there is high demand and supplies are used up, clinics may have to close early.
- People who already have an appointment booked at a site offering walk-in vaccines should still attend at their timed slot and they will receive their vaccine as planned. Appointments can still be booked at www.nhs.uk/CovidVaccination or by calling 119.
- If you have any questions about the vaccine before having it, you will be able to discuss these with a member of staff first.
