On 1 July 2022 we will become part of the Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership. You can find out more about what that means here.

Book your COVID-19 vaccine and Booster appointment

As part of the ongoing efforts of the COVID-19 vaccination programme in York, the NHS is providing pop-up clinics across the city. You can get the vaccine at the locations listed below without needing to book an appointment in advance (unless stated). 

You do not need to be registered with a GP practice or have an NHS number in order to attend a vaccine clinic. If you have any questions about the vaccine, you’ll be able to chat on-site before you have it.

Children aged 12 to 15 years old can book an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccination at Askham Bar Vaccination Centre in York. For more information, click here.

How to get your COVID booster jab in the Vale of York

The NHS is now offering a booster vaccine dose to everyone aged 18 years old and over in line with the latest guidance published by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), and the emerging threat posed by the Omicron variant of coronavirus.

Everyone aged 18 and over can now book their booster through the national NHS booking system.

You do not need to speak to your GP surgery or local pharmacy.

In addition to all over 18s, those in the following groups are also eligible for a booster three months from the date of their second dose and can book on the NHS National Booking Service one month before their eligibility date:

  • people who live and work in care homes
  • frontline health and social care workers
  • people aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts them at high risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19
  • people aged 16 and over who are a main carer for someone at high risk from COVID-19
  • people aged 16 and over who live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)

It is important that people who are pregnant and in one of the eligible groups can also get a booster dose.

National guidance states that the COVID vaccination can be administered alongside the flu vaccination. However, there will be other factors, such as vaccine delivery schedules and the characteristic of vaccination sites which will influence decisions in this area.

We would advise that, if patients are contacted to receive one or other of the vaccinations, they take up the offer and do not wait for a potential opportunity to receive both vaccinations together, to ensure protection as soon as possible.

There's further information about the booster programme in this helpful guide.

When to book a vaccine booster?

If you are eligible, you can book your vaccine booster immediately on the NHS website or by calling 119.

Currently, you can now pre-book your booster from two months (61 days) after your second dose. You will be offered an appointment three months (91 days) after the date of your second jab. You may also receive an invitation from your GP practice please book your booster as soon as you are eligible.

Alternatively, after three months, you can also go directly to an NHS walk-in centre. Please note that in North Yorkshire there are currently limited sites offering walk-in appointments for booster doses because of the high volume of booked appointments.
