Covid-19 Vaccines:

People aged 16 and over can get a 1st and 2nd dose of a vaccine.

Most children aged 12 to 15 are currently only being offered a 1st dose.


How to get your COVID-19 vaccine:
If you're aged 16 or over you can:

  • book your COVID-19 vaccination appointments online for an appointment at a vaccination centre or pharmacy
  • find a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site to get vaccinated without needing an appointment
  • wait to be contacted by your GP surgery and book your appointments with them

If you cannot book appointments online, you can call 119 free of charge. You can speak to a translator if you need to.

If you have difficulties communicating or hearing, or are a British Sign Language (BSL) user, you can use textphone 18001 119 or the NHS 119 BSL interpreter service.

There are a number of drop in clinics available in Liverpool. Available clinics can be found on the below link;

The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

Who can get a COVID-19 booster dose

Booster doses will be available on the NHS for people most at risk from COVID-19 who have had a 2nd dose of a vaccine at least 3 months ago.

This includes:

  • people aged 30 and over
  • people who live and work in care homes
  • frontline health and social care workers
  • people aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts them at high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19
  • people aged 16 and over who are a main carer for someone at high risk from COVID-19
  • people aged 16 and over who live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)

People who are pregnant and in 1 of the eligible groups can also get a booster dose.

How and when to get your COVID-19 booster dose

If you're eligible, you'll be offered a booster dose at least 3 months after you had your 2nd dose.

Most people can:

  • book a vaccination appointment online for an appointment at a vaccination centre or pharmacy
  • go to a walk-in vaccination site to get vaccinated without needing an appointment
  • wait to be contacted by a local NHS service such as a GP surgery and book an appointment with them

If you have had a 3rd dose of the vaccine, you can get a booster dose from 3 months after your 3rd dose.
