In North Tyneside, patients who are eligible for a COVID-19 booster according to Government rules – that’s all patients previously vaccinated in cohorts 1-9 which is all adults aged 50+, the clinically extremely vulnerable, clinically vulnerable, and frontline health and social care workers – will be invited in two ways.

You will be invited by your local GP practice and/or national NHS teams when you become eligible – at least 182 days (approximately six months) after your 2nd dose.  This will be either by telephone, letter, SMS or email depending upon your contact preferences.

Where you can go for your booster is different to when you had your first doses.  When you become eligible you can book through the links sent by your local GP practice or on the National Booking Service online (or by ringing 119.)  GPs are delivering covid booster and flu vaccines from 10 different sites across the borough, with the Royal Quays site in North Shields (NE29 6DW) and the Oxford Centre in Longbenton (NE12 8LT) both being available to book on the National Booking Service as well as directly with your GP practice. There are also 25 community pharmacy sites across North Tyneside able to offer boosters so you will have lots of choice of where you can attend.  You can also book at sites outside North Tyneside if this is more convenient for you.

If you want to be vaccinated by your GP practice, then please refer to the below table to see where your vaccination will be delivered.  Those eligible for a flu vaccine will also be invited around the same time.  Where possible we will try to offer both flu vaccine and COVID-19 booster together, but this may not always be possible.  It is important that when you are invited for either vaccine you attend as soon as possible to improve immunity as early as possible.
