In Warrington, the vaccine is being offered at Warrington Hospital, local GP-led vaccination centres, and larger mass vaccination sites. You can book a vaccination appointment or attend a public drop-in session.
Who is eligible?
All adults aged 18 and over are now able to get their vaccinations. A COVID-19 vaccine has been reserved for you to book your appointment.
Remember to get both doses
The vaccine will be given in two doses. COVID-19 vaccination offers good protection from two to three weeks after the first dose. The second dose is normally given around 8 weeks after the first dose. The second dose completes the course and is important for longer-term protection, so you should get both doses to protect yourself.
How it will help to stop COVID and protect vulnerable people
Getting the COVID-19 vaccine will help to protect people through decreased virus circulation.
The vaccine will also help to protect yourself and others from the virus, particularly those who are clinically extremely vulnerable and could become more seriously ill from COVID-19.
How severe are the side effects?
Most side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine are mild and only last a few days. Millions of people have already had the vaccine and the safety of the vaccines continues to be monitored. Reports of serious side effects are very rare.
