From today (Tuesday 4 May), all eligible patients in Liverpool will be able to book an appointment for their first dose at a much wider range of vaccination sites across Liverpool – either online at: www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by calling 119 anytime between 7am -11pm, seven days a week (free of charge).
In addition, those who are eligible for the vaccine can also choose to book a vaccination appointment at the Aintree Hospital site which is not currently listed on the national system, but is offering some bookable appointments by heading to the page here.
“The national NHS Booking System previously offered access to vaccination appointments at regional vaccination centres, as well as some local pharmacies and hospital-based vaccination sites, but from today all of the GP-led vaccination sites in Liverpool will also be included on this system.
“This is really great news for patients because this means it’s now easier than ever for people to book an appointment to have a vaccination at a time and location which suits them best.”
However, people are asked not to make multiple appointments at different sites, and to cancel any appointments that they can no longer attend so that the slot can be used by someone else.
Dr Naomi Rankin, a local GP and Clinical Director of iGPc, a primary care network of GP practices working together in Liverpool added:
“We want to reassure anyone who is still feeling hesitant about getting the vaccine that it is safe and offers high levels of protection against Covid-19, so it’s the very best way of protecting yourself and loved ones and helping us all get back to some normality.
“We also want to remind anyone who has already had their first vaccination of the importance of going back for the second dose too, as it really does improve and prolong immunity – so please don’t be tempted to skip it.”
A second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine should be given between 11 to 12 weeks after the first.
People who booked their first appointment through the national NHS Booking System can go online and book an appointment for their second dose now, if they haven’t yet done so.
Those who received a first dose through a local GP-led site will be contacted around a week and a half before their second dose is due and invited to make an appointment. This is to ensure that everyone receives a second dose of the same type of vaccine.
Anyone who is clinically extremely vulnerable and needs help getting to a local vaccination centre for either dose, can call the Liverpool City Council COVID Advice Line (Freephone) on 0800 169 3032 for extra support such as a free taxi.
The NHS in Liverpool is also currently hosting some vaccination clinics via a mobile vaccination bus, but this service can’t be accessed through the same booking routes because it’s specifically focussed on reaching into targeted areas of the city where vaccine take-up has been lower. Instead, people will be informed as and when it’s coming to their area by an ‘on the ground’ engagement team who will be door knocking and leaflet dropping homes.
