All Greater Manchester walk-in clinics where you can get a Covid-19 booster jab from this week

Booster Covid-19 vaccines are now being offered at entry points across Greater Manchester this week as the vaccine program ramps up again for the winter.

It is now six weeks since the booster program started and executives are eager to speed up the scheme before winter.

The NHS says there are more clinics delivering vaccines, including pharmacies, GPs and other communities, now than at any other time in the program.

And almost all persons registered with a general practitioner live within 10 miles of a permanent vaccination site.

According to the NHS, you can get a booster dose from an admission site if six months (182 days) have passed since your second dose and you either:

  • 50 years or older
  • 16 years and older with a health condition that puts you at high risk for COVID-19
  • aged 16 and over, who is the head nurse for a person at high risk for COVID-19

  • aged 16 and over who live with a person who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is being treated for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)

  • Individuals who are pregnant and in one of the eligible groups may also receive a booster dose.

When you arrive at a clinic, the staff will ask you questions to ensure that you are only offered appropriate vaccines.



Covid-19 vaccine clinics welcome people to their booster jabs

Patients who have a condition that means they are at higher risk for COVID-19 will be sent a letter reminding them to get your booster dose at least 6 months (182 days) after their second dose.

Patients can take this letter, or a letter from their GP or health care consultant, to any walk-in vaccination site from six months (182 days) after the day they received their second dose.

If you do not receive a letter but you believe you are eligible, the NHS will instruct you to contact your GP.



Those who are eligible can attend a walk-in clinic

Frontline health and social workers aged 16 and over can also receive a booster dose from a walk-in place, this includes if you live and / or work in a nursing home.

The NHS asks people to bring proof of employment, such as a photo ID at work, a letter or payslip from the employer within the last three months.
