Covid-19 Vaccinations

Walk-in Vaccinations

Who is eligible for a spring COVID-19 vaccine

You or your child may be offered a spring COVID-19 vaccine if you:

  • are 75 years or over (you need to be 75 years old by 30 June 2024)
  • are 6 months to 74 years old and have a weakened immune system
  • live in a care home for older adults


You may have a weakened immune system due to a health condition, treatment or medicine, including if you:

  • have ever had a blood cancer, such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma
  • have had an organ, bone marrow or stem cell transplant
  • have HIV (at any stage)
  • have a genetic disorder affecting your immune system
  • have certain medical treatments, such as steroid medicine (depending on your dose), certain antibody therapies, chemotherapy or radiotherapy (including those whose treatment ended up to 6 months ago)
  • take certain medicines that increase your risk of infection, such as azathioprine, dexamethasone, prednisolone, ciclosporin or mycophenolate (depending on your dose)
  • take long-term immunosuppressive treatment for conditions such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, scleroderma and psoriasis

If you are unsure, please speak to your pharmacist, GP or specialist for advice. You can also confirm your eligibility with the healthcare professional at your vaccination appointment.

This list is a summary and does not cover everything. Read a full definition of weakened immune system (immunosuppressed) in the COVID-19 chapter of the green book on GOV.UK.


Covid-19 Housebound Vaccinations

A patient is deemed to be housebound when they are unable to leave their home environment through physical and or / psychological illness.  An individual will not be eligible for a home visit if they are able to leave their home environment on their own or with minimal assistance to visit a public or social recreational public services (including shopping).

Those who are housebound will have been identified by their registered GP and will have been invited.  You will receive a phone call from the roving team or your GP to arrange an appointment.

A team of two ‘roving team’ staff will be carrying out your appointment. They will have identification to prove they are healthcare professionals.  You will receive a telephone call before the appointment to confirm they will be visiting you.

If you are having any issues and require assistance accessing a housebound appointment and you are unable to attend a Covid-19 vaccination site please contact the Housebound team using the email/telephone number below

The vaccine is given by injection into the arm. You will be asked which arm you wish to have it in – we recommend if you are right-handed to have it in your left arm and vice versa.
