Everything you need to know to make your vaccination plan

Getting your covid-19 vaccine is easier than ever, with more locations and no need to book.

Everyone over 18 can now get vaccinated. Currently, across the whole city, 46% of adults have had a vaccine, compared to the average of 83% across England. If you, or someone you know, hasn’t yet been vaccinated, we strongly encourage you to do so.

About the vaccines

All available covid-19 vaccines are safe. They go through several stages of clinical trials before being approved. As with all vaccines, there is a chance of side effects. For most people these will be mild and pass quickly. Serious side effects are extremely rare.

When you book your appointment, you will be given the best type for you age group and medical history.

Full information on the different types of vaccine and side effects can be found here.

Making your vaccination plan

You have a choice of venues and times across Newcastle. Our interactive map below shows each location and what you need to do.

Getting vaccinated is quick and easy, so please don’t put it off. The sooner we all get vaccinated, the sooner life will be able to return to normal.

When restrictions are lifted – scheduled for 19th July – those who have been vaccinated will no longer have to quarantine after travelling to ‘amber list’ countries. From 16th August, if you’ve had both doses, you’ll no longer have to isolate if you’re tracked as a close contact of a confirmed positive case.

Appointments are Community Pharmacies and large vaccination sites can be booked in advance by calling 119 or by using the National Booking System.

There are also drop-in vaccination clinics – the ‘pop up’ at the Centre for Life in the city centre, and the Vaccine Outreach Bus which will move across different parts of the city. No appointment is necessary.

Pop-ups

New pop-ip dates and locations are being added all the time. Go to Newcastle.gov.uk/covidvaccine for the latest updates.

No appointment is needed, just turn up with your ID and confirm your name and age.
