Eligible housebound residents 

If someone you care for is on their GP practice eligible housebound patient list, they will be contacted in the coming weeks to make an appointment for a vaccine home visit.

If the practice is not vaccinating this time, they will get in touch with alternative NHS vaccine providers who will contact the patient. 

These NHS providers are working closely with GP practices to ensure everyone vulnerable and eligible is offered the booster vaccine.

The Covid-19 vaccine is for those at higher risk and needs to topped up in order to give the best possible protection, similar to the flu vaccine. 

Where can I find local pop up clinics? 

We will add any new vaccine clinics to the table below. Some are walk-in where no appointment is needed and others you will need to book. You can also search here: Find a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site.

What conditions mean my child or I have a weakened immune system and can get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Check the health conditions, treatments and medications that can cause a weakened immune system here.

The summary includes:

  • those who have or previously had a blood cancer, such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma
  • organ, bone marrow or stem cell transplant recipients
  • people who have HIV infection at all stages
  • people who have a genetic disorder affecting the immune system
  • those undergoing a treatment such as steroid medicine, biological therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy (including those whose treatment ended up to 6 months ago)
  • people who take certain medicines that increase your risk of infection, such as azathioprine, dexamethasone, prednisolone, ciclosporin or mycophenolate (depending on your dosage)
  • recipients of long-term immunosuppressive treatment for conditions such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, scleroderma and psoriasis

This list is a summary and does not cover everything. You can also check online here: Book, cancel or change a COVID-19 vaccination appointment

My GP surgery isn’t offering booster vaccination. How will I get my vaccine?

You are advised to book elsewhere by calling 119 free, online via the NHS booking site, or attend a local walk-in clinic. For those living in an older adult care home, you will be offered the vaccine there.

What vaccine will I be offered? 

Below is a quick guide to vaccine type, who it is for, and where you will be most likely to receive it. 
More detailed information can be found in the ‘useful links’ section at the bottom of this page.

What about vaccines for those aren’t eligible through the NHS?

If you would like a Covid-19 vaccine, and are not eligible to get a free one through the NHS, you can now pay for one. The NHS advises people to book a vaccine through a recognised company or provider.
