How will you be contacted for vaccination?

There are a number of different ways you could be contacted in order to receive a vaccination:

1. Local hospital services – you might be contacted either to have the vaccine as an inpatient or at an outpatient appointment.

2. Local vaccination services – practices in your area are working together to contact and offer the vaccine to as many people as possible. This may be at a different surgery than you usually go to, or at a venue we have set up specially to deliver vaccines.

3. Through your care home – GPs and their teams are also arranging to vaccinate care home residents directly, in their homes.

4A letter from the NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service to book online or by phone. Booking through this service will give you the option of having the vaccine at a large-scale Vaccination Centre, or potentially a community pharmacy depending on whether these are available locally. The public will only receive a letter from the NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service if they live within a 45 minute drive from one of these sites. Our nearest site is the Wickes site in Mansfield. It is also important to note that should a person receive a national letter, they can wait for their local letter if that is more convenient.
