There are no local walk in clinics this week. Please ring 01942 807780 for an appointment.

APPOINTMENTS, SECOND DOSES & OTHER VACCINES

Need your second dose?

2nd doses are given 8 weeks after the 1st dose. Appointments must be pre booked, no walk ins. You will receive a text or call to book your 2nd appointment at our local clinics in Wigan, Leigh and Hindley. If it has now been 8 weeks you can call 01942 807780 to get booked in.

Please note 16 and 17 yr olds with no underlying medical conditions are currently only being offered 1 dose as per JVCI guidance – we will update if this changes.

Please remember that we are following national guidance which means you can only have your second dose on or after 8 weeks.

Booster vaccines

If you will be eligible for a booster vaccine, please ring 01942 807780 for an appointment when you are eligible – 6 months after your second dose.   Appointments will need to be pre-booked, no walk ins.  It will take some time for the NHS to work through those eligible so please be patient.
