Covid vaccine information for patients
You may be invited to have your vaccination at:
- A hospital
- Your GP surgery
- A large vaccination centre
- A pharmacy
For more information about what happens at your appointment is here:
National booking service for large vaccination centres
You can only use this service if you have received a letter inviting you to book your vaccination appointments.
Currently in the North East and North Cumbria this is only available for the International Centre for Life in Newcastle – but more large centres will be opening soon. Please do not contact the centre for life directly as they will
Please note large centres are in addition to vaccinations being offered by local GP practices. You may wish to wait to be invited to attend your local practice instead, which is likely to be closer to where you live. Local GPs are working quickly through eligible groups so it wont be long before you are invited. There is enough vaccine available for everyone who wants to be vaccinated.
