Coronavirus: Vaccination Clinics
Please see below for details of eligibility, how we will book your appointment, and details of what to expect when you arrive for your appointment.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus.
In the first instance, the vaccine will be offered to:
- some people aged 80 and over
- people who work in care homes
- health care workers at high risk
The vaccine will be offered more widely, and at other locations, as soon as possible.
PLEASE Wait to be contacted: We will let you know when it's your turn to have the vaccine. It's important you don't contact us before then.
How we will book your appointment
We are expecting to start vaccinating any time from Friday 18th December. We will need to book your appointment at short notice and may not be able to give any flexibility with timings, so please try to set up plans for transport to the vaccination site in advance.
We will contact you by text (if you have a mobile phone number on your record) or by phone as soon as we have appointments available.
We are planning to run our vaccination clinics from the Sports Hall at Barton Neighbourhood Centre. The full address is as follows:
Barton Neighbourhood Centre
