Don’t leave yourself at risk

So far, more than 70% of care home residents have had the booster, along with another 210,000 people across the region.

But there are still people across Newcastle and Gateshead who are particularly vulnerable to COVID. Without the added protection of a booster, they are at risk of serious illness.

Even if you have had previous vaccinations, it is important to get a booster. Protection can fade over time, and new variants can appear, leaving people vulnerable.

Booking for you and someone else

Booking a Spring COVID Booster is easy, with online, phone and walk-in vaccination options.

Two eligible people can also book joint appointments at the same time, making it easier and more convenient to get protected.

Joint appointments can be booked online or by calling 119. Calls are free.
