Changes to the vaccination programme from Monday 13 December 2021

From Monday 13 December, booster jabs are being offered to over 18’s who had their second dose at least 3 months ago.

The Covid booster helps give longer-term protection against serious illness from Covid-19.

How to get yours

From Wednesday 15 December, the national booking system will be open to all over 18’s. You can book from 2 months after your second vaccination to make sure you can get vaccinated at the 3 month mark.

Booking a slot is the best way to make sure you get your jab – visit or call 119.

Manchester residents can also book an appointment by calling the Gateway on 0161 947 0770 or 0800 092 402. Lines are open Monday to Friday, 08:00 – 18:00. Ask for a translator if you need one. The Gateway can also book a free taxi to and from vaccination appointments for those who need one.

Booking systems are very busy, but more appointments are being added all the time so please keep trying.

You can also go along to any of our walk in clinics. Details can be found on the Manchester City Council website at – COVID-19 Vaccination Programme. You don’t need an appointment to attend our walk in clinics but there may be a queue so wrap up warm and take a brolly.

Remember, it’s never too late to get vaccinated. You can still book your first or second covid vaccination if you haven’t already. Please get vaccinated and keep yourself and others safe.
