COVID VACCINATIONS

Bookings are now open as follows:

All patients aged 25 and over, those that are clinically vulnerable and carers can now book their vaccination using the following link:

COVID Vaccination booking link or by calling 119.

We are now using the national booking system so you will see appointments outside of the Nottingham area.  Appointments for the vaccination centres are being opened on a phased basis and are added regularly so if there are none showing locally please try again at a later date/time.

Eligible patients who need assistance (transport) to go to a vaccination centre should call the local support line on 0115 8834640.  

Patients who are housebound should have now been contacted to arrange a home visit for a vaccination.

Thank you for your patience
