We will be contacting people when it is their turn to be booked in for their first (or second) vaccination. If you have a mobile phone number on your medical record then you will be invited to book by text message. There will be a link to click on which will then take you through the process.

We are using a service that allows you to book appointments from your mobile, tablet or desktop. Don't worry if you can't do this as we will book you by phone but don't phone us, we will phone you.

If you do not have a smartphone, we will contact you by telephone or letter.

The only personal information you will be asked about is your date of birth. Be aware there are scams around pretending to be offering vaccination appointments. If you do not have a mobile number or a smart phone then do not worry, we will contact you by email or phone.

Couples who are both eligible should try and attend together but both need booked appointments.
