Where to get vaccinated in Newcastle this week

Everyone aged sixteen and older can now get a covid-19 vaccine. There are thousands of appointments available every week, as well as lots of drop-in locations with no need to book ahead. Don’t miss out on getting your covid jabs.

Some 12-to 15-year-olds are also now eligible to get the Pfizer vaccine. Eligibility is based on either preexisting medical conditions or living in a household with someone who is immunosuppressed. Those who can get vaccinated at this time will be invited to book an appointment.

Vaccines are already protecting millions of people and are our best way out of the pandemic. We encourage everyone eligible to get vaccinated at soon as possible.

Here’s where you can get your jab in Newcastle this week:

Vertu Motors Arena

Formerly known as the Newcastle Eagles Community Arena, the Vertu Motors Arena in Elswick has a mix of appointments and drop-in sessions. You can book through the National Booking System or by calling 119.
