Please book your appointments for sites in advance if you are able as this helps vaccination teams to manage their vaccine supplies.
Although, as suggested these sites do allow you to 'walk-in' - particularly if you have any issues with advanced bookings.
People who have struggled to use the National Booking System, aren’t registered with a GP or don’t have an NHS number are especially welcome.
- You can still use the National Booking System here.
- You may still be called in by your GP.
Please note you will only be able to have your second vaccination if it is at least 8 weeks since your first jab. You will only be able to have your Covid booster if it has been at least 3 months (12 weeks) since your 2nd jab.
Please note: not all centres can vaccinate those 17 and under.
Other vaccine centres / community pharmacies may be able to accept 'drop ins' depending on their supply of vaccine.
Frequently Asked Questions about Drop-in appointments
As vaccine supply is determined nationally we can only be flexible with the vaccine we are provided with, so not all vaccines will be available at drop-ins.
National guidance is that people should have their second vaccine after 8 weeks.
So you should only recieve your second vaccine between 8-12 weeks of the first.
You will not be able to get your second vaccine earlier at a drop in.
