Where you can get your Covid booster in Cheshire

People have been racing to get a Covid booster after Prime Minister Boris Johnson promised to offer every adult the chance to book a slot by the end of the year.

The NHS website is currently operating a queuing system due to “extremely high demand” with online bookings opening to everyone aged 30 and over from today (December 13).

The national booking service will then open up to those aged 18 and over from Wednesday, December 15.

You must book a slot which is two months after the date you received a second dose of the vaccine (61 days).

The race to offer a booster to every adult comes in response to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant.

The NHS is prioritising bookings for boosters and GP teams will be asked to clinically prioritise their services to support the Covid vaccination programme, alongside delivering critical appointments such as cancer, urgent and emergency care.

In Cheshire, booster vaccinations are being delivered at dozens of GP and pharmacy-led vaccination centres.
