COVID-19 Vaccine and Booster




Patients can book their vaccine when their age group becomes eligible.


Patients can book their vaccine using the national NHS booking service when their age group becomes eligible.

This will allow you to find a suitable date and time at a site including the Kassam Stadium vaccination centre (or other large centre in a neighbouring county) and a participating community pharmacy.

Currently, people aged 21 and over can book their first dose on the system.
