Getting your COVID-19 vaccination

A booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is available for everyone aged 18 and over, and some people aged 16 and over, who have had two doses of the vaccine at least three months ago. 

You can arrange your booster and vaccination appointments via the NHS National Booking Service or by calling 119 between the hours of 7am to 11pm, seven days a week. You can also book an appointment on behalf of someone that you care for if they are unable to do it themselves.

You can also get your booster or vaccination at one of the many walk in vaccination sites, you can use Find a walk-in coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination site - NHS to find your nearest site.

There is no need to contact your GP practice.

If you’re going on holiday this summer, making sure your child has their first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible will help them get protected for the trip.

All children aged five and over are being offered two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to boost their immunity. It’s safe, easy and gives them the best protection against the virus. 

The second dose is offered three months after the first dose and gives children maximum protection against the more serious effects of COVID-19.

If your child has already had COVID-19 they can still be re-infected, and while having had the virus may offer some immunity, the vaccine offers guaranteed and longer-lasting antibodies. 

If you strongly believe or know that your child has recently had a COVID-19 infection, they should ideally wait 12 weeks before having their first or second dose – or 4 weeks for children that are at high risk from COVID-19, or they live with someone who has a weakened immune system. This starts from the date symptoms started or from the date of a positive test, whichever was earlier. If your child had some symptoms but is not sure if they had COVID-19, they should still attend for vaccination once symptoms are better and can discuss this with a healthcare professional.

The COVID-19 vaccine is being given in a wide range of vaccine services, including vaccination centres, GP practices, hospital hubs and pharmacies, across the North West.

Parents and guardians can book appointments online thorugh the NHS COVID-19 vaccination site or by calling 119.

Walk-in clinics are available in some locations – some locations and opening times may have changed, so check online for the nearest participating site - and older siblings, or other family members, can be vaccinated together at the same time. 

Further information is available for young people on the COVID-19 vaccination: resources for children and young people Government webpage. Information for parents can be found on the COVID-19 vaccination programme for young people: guidance for parents Government webpage.
