Book yourself a COVID-19 vaccination appointment
To support healthcare workers and community based social care workers to receive their Covid-19 vaccination, they now have the option to book their vaccination appointments in a vaccination centre or community pharmacy through the NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service.
Staff can book online here.
Staff should try online booking first but if this is not possible, they can phone 119 free of charge, 7am to 11pm, 7 days a week.
As part of the booking process, eligible staff need to self-declare that they are a health or social care worker:
At their appointment, staff will be asked to verbally declare that they are a health or social care worker, the type of role/work they do and the name of their employer. The member of staff should also bring ID/proof of employment such as a staff ID badge, a recent payslip or recent letter/email from their employer (dated within the last 3 months).
