Second Doses

If you don’t have an appointment for your second dose

Some people may be feeling concerned that they haven’t received an appointment for their second dose yet.

This will be because centres are not booking people in until they have had confirmation of vaccine supply.

Nobody will be forgotten.

If you received your first vaccine through an appointment made by your GP Practice, they will contact you by the 12th week to book you in. If you are already in your 12th week and haven’t received an appointment please contact your GP in the first instance.

If you received your first vaccine by calling 119 or booking on-line at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination please go back through this method to book your second dose. Don’t be concerned if you can’t see an appointment straight away, bookings are released daily, so keep trying.

If you already have an appointment for your second dose

If you already have an appointment over the coming weeks for your second dose, this remains in place and it’s really important that you attend it as planned. To get maximum protection everyone will need to get a second dose. Over 4 million people have already had both doses, and we are urging people to come back when they are contacted or if they have an appointment booked.

People who booked online can remind themselves of the place and time of their second dose using the ‘manage my appointments’ section on www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination. If your first dose was through your GP they will be in touch 11- 12 weeks after your first appointment to book your second vaccination.
