Is this just for boosters or can I have any vaccine here?

Your first dose of the vaccine, or the booster vaccine can be given at the centre. You do not need to stipulate whether it is your first dose or a booster jab when you book.  

Second doses of the vaccine cannot be booked at this centre. If you need to book a second vaccine please visit the NHS Coronavirus vaccination website. 

Do I have to book, or can I just turn up?

It’s best to book an appointment but we also accept walk-ins. 

What type of vaccine will I be given?

The vaccination centre will be using the Moderna vaccine. 

Does it matter if my first and second vaccination were not the Moderna vaccine?

No. The Moderna vaccine is an effective booster for most COVID-19 vaccines. 

Do I need to be registered with a doctor or GP surgery?

No. You don’t need to be registered with a GP surgery. However if you need a booster vaccine please bring details of your previous vaccines if you have them.  

You can register with a local doctor sometimes called a GP or general practitioner anytime, for free.  

I’m an international student and had my vaccines outside of the UK, am I eligible?

You may be eligible for a booster jab. Come along to the centre and we can discuss this with you. If you have them, please bring details of your first COVID-19 vaccines if you are not registered with a doctor or GP surgery. 

Do I need an NHS number?

If you know your NHS number please bring this with you. It will help staff in the vaccination centre find your details. Find your NHS number online or by using the NHS app. 

Do I need to bring proof of previous vaccines I’ve received?

For all UK residents and students registered with a GP surgery or doctor in the UK, your vaccination records will be available to us on the system. Please bring your NHS number with you, if you know it. Find your NHS number online or by using the NHS app. 

If you are not registered with a GP surgery or doctor, then please bring with you details of the previous COVID-19 vaccines you have received, if you have them. 

What do I need to bring with me?

  • A face covering, unless you cannot wear one for a health or disability reason. 
  • A copy of your booking confirmation (an electronic copy on your phone is fine). 
  • Your NHS number, if you are registered with a doctor in the UK, and you know your number. 
  • If you received your first two doses of the vaccine outside of the UK please bring with you details of your first vaccines, if you have them. You may not be able to be vaccinated without this.
