Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group says that people will be able to book an appointment locally, once invited, to have their Covid boosters, either online via Coronavirus booster vaccine at www.nhs.uk or by telephoning 119.

“This is a really positive move for us and provides an additional option for local people. We are delighted to be working with both centres to make this happen,” comments Rebecca Neno, Director of Covid and Influenza Vaccination Programmes, NHS Lincolnshire CCG.

“Whilst we have vaccinations sites across Lincolnshire, including our two Mass Vaccination Centres at The Lincolnshire Showground, and at PRSA, Boston, we have been working to provide a more local option for people in and around Spalding and Pinchbeck.

“We know there is significant demand for the covid vaccination, including the booster, and have been impressed by the take-up when we have previously run pop-up vaccination sessions locally.

“For booster vaccinations we are asking people to make an appointment online via the National Booking System or by telephoning 119. You become eligible for the booster vaccination at least six months after you had your second dose.

“However, if you are yet to have your second dose, or even your first, it is not too late – we are still offering these at our vaccination sites across the county, including at Broadgate House and Pinchbeck Library and Community Hub.”

Uptake of the booster vaccination across the county has been strong with over 100,000 people having already had their booster.

“This is really encouraging for us and we are so pleased that Lincolnshire people are continuing to come forwards to get vaccinated, to get the best possible protection from covid. If you’re not sure or have any questions about getting vaccinated, please come and talk to us – we will provide you with the information you need to make an informed choice,” adds Rebecca.
