About vaccination appointments:
Thank you for your interest in your vaccination. Vaccination services are working extremely hard to roll out the booster programme and to make as many appointments available as possible. After last night’s announcement the national booking website is very busy but please keep checking; more appointments will be added from Wednesday 15 December. You may also be contacted by a your local service over the next few days
You must be 2 months from the date of your second vaccination to arrange your booster – and you will be able to have it when you are three months from your second vaccination;
The best step if you are at 2 months from the date of your second vaccination is to go on the National Booking System website – or call 119 – and there you will be able to see all the available appointments. More and more are added every day so if you can’t see a local service, try later in the day or the next day.
You must be registered with a GP to be able to access the national booking system but walk-in centres will allow vaccines without registration at a GP, or if you have had vaccinations elsewhere, i.e. overseas. However, it is absolutely imperative that the person has all valid documentation showing their previous vaccinations.
Our nearest walk-in centre is in the Westmorland Shopping centre in Kendal and you can find more details about opening times here.
All of the vaccination services are working at pace to increase the number of appointments they can offer.
