Getting your vaccine
The NHS has begun vaccinating people in mid and south Essex against coronavirus as part of the biggest immunisation programme in NHS history.
If you have received a letter inviting you to book a coronavirus vaccination, you can now book it online. Please do not try to book a vaccination if you have not received a letter.
If you’re aged you are aged 25 or will turn 25 before 1 July 2021, then you’re eligible to receive the vaccine. It’s quick and simple to book, and the vaccines are safe and effective.
Visit the National Booking Service or call 119 for an appointment at a vaccination centre. Alternatively, you can wait to be contacted by your GP practice for an appointment at a local GP practice.
If you live in Essex and need help to book an appointment you can ring 0344 2573 961 (open 10am to 4pm, local rate).Book a coronavirus vaccination
We need the public to continue to play their part too:
- unless you are in the groups being invited now, please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine, we will contact you when it is the right time;
- when we do contact you, please attend your booked appointments at exactly the time you’re asked to, and make sure you come back for your second dose;
- and whether you have had your vaccine or not, please continue to follow all the guidance in place to control the virus and save lives.
