There are a number of options to get a COVID-19 vaccine in North Tyneside. Healthwatch North Tyneside have put together this guide to give you all the information you need to get your vaccine.
What you’ll need to take with you
You’ll be asked to provide your:

You do not need an appointment for the walk-in service but it is for first doses only. To use the walk-in services you will need to know that you are eligible for the vaccine – currently anyone 25 or over on 1 July 2021 (correct on 9/6/21) or in a high risk group.
