Eligible patients invited to book COVID-19 vaccine this week

25th January 2021 | By Communications Team | Posted in

Eligible patients in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland are being invited to book a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible for this week.

The local NHS is offering 1,000 appointments a day and is very keen to ensure that all eligible people who have not yet had a vaccine invitation have a chance to book this week.

We can accept bookings for the next seven days for any member of the public, registered with an NHS number, who is:

1)       70 years+

2)       Clinically Extremely Vulnerable

Eligible patients should book an appointment as soon as possible to be vaccinated in the next seven days. Members of the public are also encouraged to share this information with eligible patients who may not yet have been vaccinated. A vaccine booking can be made by clicking on the link:

https://www.leicestershospitals.nhs.uk/patients/covid-19-information-hub/covid-19-vaccination/

Please ensure you follow the instructions on the web page before accessing the booking link, as the instructions provide the necessary PIN and step by step details of how to book.

Photo ID and proof of eligibility (a current shielding letter) will need to be provided on arrival.

Please note that the second dose of the vaccine may be offered at another local vaccination site and not necessarily at the same site of the first dose.
