  • If you’re 18 or over and have your 1st dose at a walk-in vaccination site, you can book your 2nd COVID-19 vaccination appointment online. You’ll need to wait 24 hours after your 1st dose before you can book.
  • If you have your 1st dose through your GP surgery, you’ll be contacted when it’s time to book your 2nd dose.
  • You can attend a walk in service to have your 2nd. Just make sure it is at least 8 weeks since your first vaccine.
