In line with the latest guidance, the NHS is bringing forward when some people receive their second dose of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) vaccination, if they haven’t already had it.
You may have seen the news about different variants of Covid-19 circulating in some parts of the country. It is important that we quickly respond to this.
That is why, in line with Government and JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) guidance, we are bringing forward when some people get their second dose of the vaccine, if they haven’t already had it.
If you are in a higher risk group (over 50, clinically extremely vulnerable, clinically vulnerable, a front line health worker or a carer) and are at a greater risk of becoming seriously ill from Covid-19, it will ensure you can get maximum protection from the virus earlier.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
If the appointment was booked through the NHS website or 119, some people will be contacted to be offered an earlier appointment for their second dose. If you’ve been contacted and you’d like to rebook, you’ll need to cancel your existing appointment before booking your new appointments. Please wait to be contacted if you think you’re in this group.
If the appointment was booked via Swiftqueue, and is after 13 June it will be moved to an earlier date. You will be contacted by text or email to inform you of the change in appointment. If you did not leave an e-mail or telephone number when booking your appointment, please contact the local booking line on 0115 8834640. If you do not receive a message and want to move your appointment sooner, please call 0115 8834640.
If your second appointment is before 13 June you can also have your appointment moved earlier. Please contact the local booking line on 0115 8834640.
