Getting vaccinated and getting your second dose

Last updated: 26 November 2021.

Protect yourself, your family and your community

The Covid-19 vaccines are safe and effective. They are the best way to protect yourself and other people around you.

Covid-19 booster vaccine

If you are eligible, you will be invited to receive your booster vaccine six months after you had your second Covid-19 vaccination. You will also be offered the seasonal flu vaccination at the same appointment if eligible.

The Covid-19 booster and flu vaccinations are by appointment only at our vaccination sites located in Ramsbottom, Bury, Radcliffe and Prestwich.

First and second vaccinations

Vaccinations are available for everyone aged 12 or over.

  • For children aged 12 to 15 appointments can be booked through the NHS National Booking Service or by phoning 119.  Appointments for this age group are not currently available at our four local vaccination clinics, but alternative locations are available to book.
  • Young people aged 16 and 17 can get a first vaccination at the same clinics as people aged 18 and over without an appointment.  However, second vaccinations (available from 22 November for this age group) are by appointment only and should take place 12+ weeks after the first. 
  • Everyone aged 18 and over can get their first or second Covid-19 vaccination at our regular clinics below. No appointment is needed. Just turn up. Second vaccinations should take place 8+ weeks after the first.
