When you can get a Covid-19 vaccine locally

A number of clinics have been organised for local residents to get a Covid-19 vaccine.

Anyone aged 18 or over can have their first or second vaccine dose, or their booster if it has been three months since their second jab. 

Teenagers aged 16 and 17 can be offered their first, second or booster dose (if it has been 12 weeks after their previous dose). 

Meanwhile, 12 to 15 year olds can be offered their first dose, or second dose if 12 weeks after the first, if accompanied by a consenting adult.  

People do not have to be a patient at a GP surgery in the area to attend a clinic. 

Five to 11-year-olds who are in a clinical risk group need to wait to be contacted and have an appointment booked, so shouldn't turn up to the listed clinics below. Five to 11-year-olds can have two child-sized doses 12 weeks apart. 

Spring boosters are available for those aged 75 or over and the immunosuppressed if it's been six months since their previous dose.
