Drop-in Sessions

Drop in sessions for Pfizer Vaccinations Only

Anyone over 16 can have their first vaccination by using our walk-in centres to get their jab.  No appointment needed.  Details of drop-in times are below.

The second dose can only be given to those who have waited a minimum of eight weeks from their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

Monday 15 November – extension to the vaccination programme

16 – 17 year olds and second doses – The Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) recommended on Monday 15 November that those aged 16 and 17 should become eligible for a second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine from 12 weeks after their final primary dose.

The NHS will contact people in this age group directly to let them know when it is their turn to get their second dose, however, the National Booking Service has now been enabled for second dose bookings by 16-17 year olds or they can call 119, walk-ins will be made available later.

Booster doses for over 40s – The extension of booster jabs to those aged 40-49 (cohort 10) was recommended by the Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) on Monday 15 November. The NHS will contact people in this age group directly to let them know when it is their turn to get their booster vaccine, but the National Booking Service has now been enabled so that bookings by this newly eligible group can be made online or calling 119.

Booking an appointment

You may find it easier and more convenient to book an appointment for your COVID-19 vaccination, to do this visit the National Booking System website.

Timing between 1st and 2nd doses of the vaccine

Although the majority of protection comes from the first dose, having your second dose is still extremely important too as it will improve and prolong your immunity – so please don’t skip your second dose. But, you will need to wait 56 days between the first and second dose.

As set out by the Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) a period of 56 days (8 weeks) from the first dose must have passed before a second dose can be given.  We are therefore unable to administer doses before this period of time has elapsed.

The only exception to this rule is based on clinical vulnerability and must be supported by a letter from a medical professional, such as the consultant overseeing your care.

A longer period can take place between doses if it is not possible to attend at the 8 week timescale.
