COVID-19 Vaccinations

Vaccination clinics at your local GP practice

GP practices are running clinics for their patients. They will contact you directly when your vaccination is due.  

If you’re over 50 you're eligible for a free flu and COVID-19 booster vaccine this winter.

Getting both vaccines is important because:

  • more people are likely to get flu this winter
  • you're more likely to be seriously ill if you get flu and COVID-19 at the same time.

For how to book visit and to find out who else is eligible for the vaccinations.

COVID-Vaccination Scams

Some people are reporting that they are receiving phone calls offering vaccine appointments for a cost, or text messages directing people to a convincing fake NHS website with a booking link.

The COVID-19 vaccine will always be free in the UK and delivered by the NHS. You will be contacted by the NHS call/recall service telling you when you are eligible.

Anyone offering you a real NHS COVID-19 vaccination booking will never:

  • ask you for payment or any bank details
  • ask you to press a button on your keypad when on the phone
  • ask you to send a text to confirm the booking

Anyone who has concerns about whether an approach is genuine should speak to their local GP surgery.
