The NHS is urging the public to make sure they are protected ahead of winter. Whether it is the flu jab, your first or second Covid-19 vaccine or a Covid-19 booster jab, please do make sure you get protected ahead of Winter, if you are eligible.
Booster jabs are being offered to over 50s, people over 16 with a health condition that puts them at high risk of getting seriously ill from Covid-19, and health and social care workers. These groups can have their booster once six months has passed since their second dose. Those eligible for a booster vaccination can book an appointment on the NHS website or walk into selected sites to receive a jab without an appointment. For information about walk-in site opening times, please visit www.nhs.uk/grab-a-jab
Children aged 12-15 are also being offered one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. These are being carried out in schools but clinics are being held at our Covid-19 vaccination centres too. You can book an appointment on the NHS website or walk in. For information about walk-in site opening times, please visit www.nhs.uk/grab-a-jab
First and Second doses:
Vaccination sites across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire continue to offer appointments for first and second doses. Those who have not yet taken up the offer have not been forgotten, there is a vaccine waiting for them. Anyone 16 and over can see the latest opening times to walk in here, or book an appointment, online or by calling 119.
For information about flu vaccines, who is eligible for a free vaccine and why it is important, please visit the NHS website.
