Covid 19 Vaccination Update

You may have seen in the news that people have the chance to have their second vaccine after 8 weeks instead of the current arrangement which is 11 weeks.

Changing all of these in Newcastle would have meant rearranging about 19,000 appointments! This would have been complicated and could have caused a lot of confusion. Instead the original 11 week appointments are going to be kept.

However if you do want to have your appointment earlier, you can book this via the National Booking System (NBS) (or if preferred, telephone 119) selecting their venue of choice and choosing the second dose option.

If you do book a new appointment, please cancel your original Covid19 vaccination appointment so it can be offered to someone else (you'll need the booking reference you were given when the appointment was made).
