The Nottinghamshire Covid Vaccination Programme

Don't worry, everyone will be called in due course.
Currently being vaccinated (last updated 13/05/21):
Anyone over 38 years old

If you are in any of these groups, please book!

Where can I get a vaccine
NHS Nottinghamshire is delivering the vaccine via a county-wide system. Working together, with others, helps us to deliver the vaccine whilst ensure we keep other services safe and running.
Vaccines will be done at local sites across Nottinghamshire:
Queen's Medical Centre
Nottingham City Hospital
King’s Mill Hospital
Ashfield Health Village
Cripps Health Centre
Forest Recreation Ground
Gamston Community Centre
King’s Meadow Campus
Richard Herrod Centre
There are a number of pharmacy-lead sites now opening; our nearest is at Rolls Royce Leisure in Huckall, and is available to book via the NHS national booking website.
Please note, currently individual practices in Hucknall will not be vaccinating at their own sites.
#TorkardTopTips when you attend a vaccine clinic
- Avoid arriving early, because you may not be allowed in
- Please give yourself some additional time later on, just in case there is a wait – don’t plan other appointments later that day
- Make sure you feel well (if you have a current infection, you may be better postponing it)
- Wear appropriate clothes – it’s winter and cold, and it may rain – please prepare for this. Remember, you may be waiting outside
- Once inside, ensure your arm can be exposed fully easily
- If you have an invite letter, please bring it with you
- If you know or can find out your NHS number (eg via NHS App, your invite letter) please write it down and bring it with you – it makes finding you on the computer system so much quicker
- Bring your list of medication (we're specifically interested in any blood thinning medication such as warfarin)
- Try to come alone, although if you need a carer to accompany you for health reasons, they can come too
