All adults in England can now book their COVID-19 jab

All adults can now book their COVID-19 jab

If you are 18 or over, and you haven’t booked your first dose yet, the time to do so is now. You can find out how at nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by phoning 119. People are also urged to come back for their second dose when they are contacted or if they have an appointment booked. Those who booked online can remind themselves of the place and the time of their second dose using the ‘manage my appointments’ section at nhs.uk.

You can also get your jab at your nearest walk-in centre. People who attend a walk-in clinic for their first dose will have their vaccination record updated online and will then be able to book in their second dose appointment using the national booking system.

If you’re unable to book through the national booking service, you can speak to your GP.
