Getting vaccinated

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. See: NHS - Coronavirus vaccine.

Covid-19 vaccinations

Covid-19 vaccinations are available at our vaccination sites located in Ramsbottom, Bury, Radcliffe and Prestwich.

Our four local vaccination clinics offer first, second and booster vaccinations to eligible people when they are due.

As with previous campaigns the oldest and most vulnerable people will be called first.

Eligible people are asked to wait to be contacted by the NHS when it's their turn

Whilst we will try to accommodate walk-in appointments, bookings are preferable to avoid people having to wait.

You can book your Covid-19 vaccination by visiting NHS - Book or manage a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination or calling 119, or by calling our local booking team on 0161 983 2300, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

Please note:

Patients may be offered their second vaccine earlier but only to avoid wastage or because of a specific medical condition. Second doses will not be brought forward for the purposes of foreign travel.

If you or your child have a positive Covid-19 test or symptoms of Covid-19

If you've had a positive Covid-19 test, you need to wait before getting any dose of the vaccine. You need to:

  • Wait 4 weeks (28 days) if you're aged 18 years old or over
  • Wait 12 weeks (84 days) if you're aged 5 to 17 years old
  • Wait 4 weeks (28 days) if you're aged 5 to 17 years old and at high-risk from Covid-19 or live with someone who has a weakened immune system. See: NHS - Coronavirus: people at higher risk

This starts from the date that symptoms started, or the date of the positive test result, whichever was earlier.

If you or your child have symptoms of COVID-19, but have not had a test, wait until the symptoms are better to get a Covid-19 vaccine. You can talk to a healthcare professional about this at: NHS - Coronavirus in children.
