Preparing for second doses

Thursday, 04 March 2021

Across our local area, vaccination services are preparing to offer second doses.

While the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine gives a good immunity to the virus, two doses are needed to have the best chance of full protection.

Second doses are being scheduled up to twelve weeks after the first. It is really important that people get both doses to get the greatest benefit from the vaccine.  

If you don't already have your date for your second dose, please be patient. Unless you have already booked both doses through the national booking service, you must have your second dose at the same place that you received your first. You will be contacted to arrange your appointment, but this may not happen until around ten to eleven weeks after your first appointment.

Thank you so much for your patience.
