Nottinghamshire NHS invites ALL over-65s to book their Covid vaccination – see all details

Letters and text messages have now been sent to all over 65s inviting them to book an appointment at their nearest and most convenient Covid vaccination site.

If you are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable you can use the local booking link or call 0115 883 4640 to book an appointment.

If you are over 65, you will receive a letter inviting you to book your Covid-19 vaccination appointment. You can book via the local booking site or call 0115 883 4640 between 8am – 8pm (Mon to Fri) and 9am-5pm (Sat to Sun). Over 65s can also call 119 or use the national booking link to book an appointment at the large scale Mansfield Vaccination Centre.

Amanda Sullivan, Accountable Officer for NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “The progress being made by the teams on the ground is remarkable and we are grateful to all those supporting the vaccination programme for their continued hard work.

“It’s really important those who are most vulnerable in our community receive their vaccinations to help protect them against Covid-19. We have sent letters out to all over 65s inviting them for a vaccine and I would urge all those who are eligible to book an appointment as soon as they can.

“Health and care teams are working together to make sure people in all communities across the city and county are getting the vaccine but you can help too. Please urge friends, family and those close to you to book a vaccine if they are eligible. A helpful guide to support people to book and understand what is available is here.”

Residents can get vaccinated at a number of sites across the city and county including the old Central TV studios at King’s Meadow in Lenton as well as sites in Gamston, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Gedling, Mansfield and Newark.

People who are clinically vulnerable, also identified as JCVI Cohort 6, will also begin to be invited for vaccination shortly.

The local NHS is working with general practice to identify anyone eligible so they can be invited for their vaccination as swiftly as possible.

Please don’t worry if you are not contacted straight away as there are lots of people in this cohort and it will take a few weeks to invite and vaccinate everyone. Please wait for your letter which will identify you as eligible.
