Covid Vaccination FAQs for those aged 45 and over in Nottinghamshire

Nottingham and Nottinghamshire NHS CCG has produced this set of questions to help people get vaccinated.

How do I book an appointment?

We are rolling out booking for Covid-19 vaccination appointments for everyone aged 45 and over locally.

You can book your Covid-19 vaccination appointment by visiting this website –https://www.swiftqueue.co.uk/nottinghamc19vpatient.php or calling the local booking centre on 0115 883 4640 between 8am – 6pm during weekdays and 9am – 1pm on weekends.

Over 45s can also call the National Booking Service on 119 or use the national booking link to book an appointment at the large scale Mansfield Vaccination Centre or their nearest pharmacy-led site.

Do I need to wait for a letter before I book my appointment?

You do not need to wait for your letter to book your appointment – please book straight away if you are in this age group.

We are writing to everyone eligible locally over the next seven days. We will also send a text message where possible as well.

Do I need to bring my letter to the appointment?

No, but we ask that everyone observes the guidance when booking their appointment. If you are not eligible for your vaccine yet, please do not book in for your Covid-19 vaccination appointment. It is important these appointments are protected for those who are now eligible under this cohort to help protect them against Covid-19.

I haven’t been called for a vaccine yet – have I missed my chance for an appointment now you have moved onto the next cohort?

No, absolutely not. We want to get everyone vaccinated who is eligible.
