Update on Covid-19 Booster Programme

Posted on:

The NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.

All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.

From Wednesday 15 December, the national booking system will be open to all over 18’s. You can book from 2 months after your second vaccination to make sure you can get vaccinated at the 3 month mark.

Booking a slot is the best way to make sure you get your jab – visit www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or call 119.

Manchester residents can also book an appointment by calling the Gateway on 0161 947 0770 or 0800 092 402.

Lines are open Monday to Friday, 8am – 6pm. Ask for a translator if you need one. The Gateway can also book a free taxi to and from vaccination appointments for those who need one.

Please do not call the surgery to book your booster vaccination appointment

We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services will also contact patients directly.

New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. Further availability will come online from Wednesday 15 December.

We will be working with all of our sites to take further steps to increase what they can offer again, including opening later and on more days.

You can also go along to any of our walk in clinics. Details can be found on the Manchester City Council website. You don’t need an appointment to attend our walk in clinics but there may be a queue so wrap up warm and take a brolly.

Remember, it’s never too late to get vaccinated. You can still book your first or second Covid vaccination if you haven’t already. Please get vaccinated and keep yourself and others safe.
