Booster vaccine doses are available on the NHS for people most at risk from COVID-19 who have already had 2 doses of a vaccine. You are eligible for a booster dose after 6 months after you had your 2nd dose.
Those eligible include:

- people aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts them at high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19
- carers aged 16 and over
- people aged 16 and over who live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
How to get a booster:
There are a number of sites across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire delivering the booster jab. You can book an appointment on the NHS website or by calling 119. Eligible members of the public will be able to book from 152 days after their second dose.

Third doses for people who are immunosupressed
The Government has announced that people who are immunosuppressed should have a third dose of the Covid-19 vaccine – this is not a booster, but a third dose to ensure that such people receive the same protection given by two doses for those with normal immune systems.
Letters are being sent from specialist teams at the hospitals to invite those eligible to receive their vaccine. People who are eligible can then walk into any of our vaccination sites with their eligibility letter to receive this third dose. These include:
- King’s Mill Hospital Vaccination Hub: Mansfield Road, Sutton-in-Ashfield, NG17 4JL
- Mansfield Vaccination Centre: Chesterfield Road, Mansfield, NG19 7BH.
- Forest Recreation Ground Vaccination Site: Forest Recreation Ground, Gregory Blvd, Nottingham, NG7 6AQ
Please use the GrabAJab website to find site opening times.
Please note, you will still need to receive a booster dose six months from the date of your third primary course dose.
If a person believes they are eligible for this third dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, but have not been contacted by the specialist team from the hospital they can contact their GP or hospital consultant to discuss eligibility and provision of an appropriate letter.
How to get a first or second dose appointment
