Questions about appointments

 

How can I get an appointment?

You’ll be offered appointments based on the current availability of vaccination clinics near to you.

 

Can I just drop in anywhere?

Yes, everyone aged 16+ can also access a range of drop-in clinics taking place around the city.

How can I access the vaccination bus?

The NHS in Liverpool is hosting some vaccination clinics via a mobile vaccination bus, specifically focussed on reaching into targeted areas of the city where vaccine take-up has been lower.

Vaccinations on the bus will be offered on either a drop-in or booked appointment basis – and people will be informed in advance when it’s due to be in their area.

Details of upcoming bus visits can also be found here: https://www.liverpoolccg.nhs.uk/drop-in-vaccination

 

What if I am unable to attend a vaccination clinic?

Patients who are housebound and therefore unable to attend a vaccination site will be offered a vaccination at home via their GP practice or the Liverpool Roving Vaccination Team. On average it takes 6 times longer to vaccinate someone at home so this service is only offered to those who are unable to leave their home.

If you need help with transport Liverpool City Council offer a free taxi service to and from vaccination clinics for people in certain cohorts.  To access this service you can ring the Liverpool City Council Covid Advice Line on 0800 169 3032 and select option 2 to speak to an advisor. 

  

Can I get the vaccine if I am not registered to a GP practice?

It's not possible to access the vaccine through the national NHS booking system if you are not a registered patient. However, no GP practice in Liverpool should turn you away if you contact them to explain your situation, providing that you are eligible to receive one.

If you are not currently registered to a GP practice, we would strongly recommend it.
