COVID-19 VACCINATION PROGRAMME

The Covid-19 vaccination programme has begun. When it is your turn to be vaccinated, the NHS will contact you.

Please do not contact the NHS, or this GP Practice.

In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, a few different health care organisations, including hospitals, GP practices, care homes, and others are working together on the Covid-19 vaccination programme.

This means that when it is your turn to be vaccinated, this may not be at you GP practice. 

Local Vaccination Centres include the Forest Recreation Ground and Kingsmeadow (Lenton Lane)

Please note, patients aged over 50 are now able to book online using the following link:

Over 50 swiftqueue.co.uk/nottingham

****

In line with national guidance, we have now opened Covid-19 vaccination booking for people who are in cohorts 6. 

This includes: 

  • Anyone between the ages of 16 to 65 with underlying health conditions which put them at a higher risk of serious disease or mortality. This is also known as “clinically vulnerable.” Read more about who is eligible here.
  • Anyone who is in receipt of carer’s allowance. 
  • Anyone who is the main carer of an elderly or disabled person, whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill.  

If you are eligible under one of the above categories, you can book your Covid-19 vaccination appointment by visiting this booking link:

Clinically Vulnerable - swiftqueue

or call the local booking line on 0115 883 4640 between 9am – 6pm during weekdays and 9am – 5pm on weekends. 

Please see Nottingham CCG FAQ for further information on who is eligible in cohort 6 Cohort 6 FAQ

We understand that a lot of people want to be vaccinated and would like to reassure you that this will happen. Please be patient and wait to be contacted.

Please continue to stay safe.
