Information on the NHS vaccine delivery plan

Everyone invited to get their COVID-19 vaccination is urged to get it as soon as possible to protect themselves and to reduce the spread of the virus to others. All adults can now book to get their booster jab.

  • You should get your second vaccine dose eight weeks after your first dose.
  • You can get your booster dose three months after your second dose.
  • Please ensure your GP has your up-to-date phone number so they can invite you to a vaccination appointment. If you're not registered with a GP, it is easy to do this - find GP practices near you.
  • You do not need to be registered with a GP to attend walk-in sessions at the Riviera International Centre.

Make sure you get your second dose and your booster

Having all 3 doses of the vaccine reduces illness, the virus spreading and pressure on our local NHS. Those aged over 18 years should get their second vaccine dose eight weeks after their first dose. Young people aged 16 and 17 should have their second dose from 12 weeks after their first.

Are the vaccines safe?

Our vaccines have been approved for use in the UK and have been through rigorous tests and approval processes to prove they are safe and effective.

They have met strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness set out by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). More information on safety is available on the NHS website.
