People aged 42 and over

You can get the COVID-19 vaccine if:

  • you’re aged 42 or over
  • you’ll turn 42 before 1 July 2021

You can book appointments at a larger vaccination centre or pharmacy now, or wait to be invited to go to a local NHS service.

People at high risk from COVID-19 (clinically extremely vulnerable)

1 1

People at high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19 (clinically extremely vulnerable), can get the COVID-19 vaccine.

If you’re at high risk, you will have had a letter from the NHS saying you’re clinically extremely vulnerable.

If you’ve had this letter, you can book appointments at a larger vaccination centre or pharmacy now, or wait to be invited to go to a local NHS service.

In line with national guidance, you can now receive the Covid-19 vaccination if you are:

  • A resident in a care home or long term residential facility 
    If you or someone you know is a resident in a care home, you will be vaccinated by our vaccination roving team or a GP. Your care home will have information on when this will be.
  • Frontline health and social care worker
    If you are a frontline health or social care worker, the organisation you work at will have details on how you can book your Covid-19 vaccination appointment.

Covid-19 vaccination bus

A mobile vaccination bus is offering the Covid-19 vaccine to people in Nottingham to help drive uptake amongst eligible groups. The bus will travel around areas of the city initially before moving to areas in the county. For further information, and to book a vaccination appointment on the bus, click here.

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.
