On Thursday (March 11) the local covid-19 vaccination booking system will open to people aged 55 and over.
If you are eligible, you can book your Covid-19 vaccination appointment by visiting the booking link or call the local booking line on 0115 883 4640 between 8am – 8pm during weekdays and 9am – 5pm on weekends.
Over 55s can also call the National Booking Service on 119 or use the national booking link to book an appointment at the large scale Mansfield Vaccination Centre or their nearest pharmacy-led site.
Dr John Brewin, Chief Executive, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Joint Senior Responsible Officer for Covid-19 Vaccine, said: “We are pleased to be able to invite everyone who is 55 and over forward for their Covid-19 vaccination.
“I would like to assure you that we have plenty of vaccines available and there is enough for everyone so please do book your appointment as soon as possible if you are eligible.
“Anyone who is eligible can book in for their vaccination via the local booking site or by calling 0115 883 4640. I would urge anyone in this category to take up vaccination to help protect themselves against Covid-19.
“People in the priority groups which have already been announced have not missed their chance to get jabbed. If you haven’t yet taken up the offer, please do come forward and make an appointment – the vaccine is safe, simple, and will offer you and those around you the best protection against this virus. It is never too late to change your mind if you have previously said no.”

We are working closely with the local councils during the pandemic. The County Council are supporting us with managing requests for information and assistance related to the vaccine rollout so if you have any questions that are not answered by the information here please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0300 500 80 80.
Two types of letters are being sent out to those who are eligible – one from the local NHS and one from the NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service.
The local letter will direct patients to Local Vaccination Services. In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire we now have seven Local Vaccination Services as well as three Hospital Hubs.
The national letter will give the public the option of having the vaccine at a large Vaccination Centre, or potentially a community pharmacy depending on whether these are available locally. Our nearest Vaccination Centre is in Mansfield.
