COVID-19 Vaccination Programme – What You Need to Know

Vaccination is clinically-proven to reduce your risk of getting seriously ill from Coronavirus (COVID-19) and your risk of catching or spreading the virus.

Never too late to get your first, second or booster vaccination

If eligible, you can arrange your next COVID-19 vaccination online via the National Booking Service (or by calling 119), by responding to an invitation from the NHS or by attending a local walk-in vaccination clinic.

What's happening in neighbouring areas?

Residents are equally entitled to access vaccination centres outside of Cheshire - if this is more convenient - either via the National Booking Service (or by calling 119) or by attending a walk-in vaccination clinic. Click on the links below to find out what's on offer in neighbouring areas:

Cheshire Vaccination Bank

To help meet the challenge presented by COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, a fresh plea has been made for retired and former healthcare professionals registered with an approved professional body (e.g. NMC, HCPC, GDC) to return to the ranks and support the Cheshire Vaccination Bank.

The programme is particularly keen to recruit:

  • Registered healthcare professionals to dilute, draw up and deliver vaccines to both adults and children. Paid roles are available now within the Children’s Drawing Up and Vaccinator teams, as well as our Seasonal Flu team.
  • Registered healthcare professionals to take on non-clinical roles as shift supervisors. You will be responsible for managing workers during their shift, including authorising timesheets, co-ordinating breaks, and supporting clinical staff with any medical emergencies.
  • Non-registered clinicians (vaccinators) to train to vaccinate who are not registered or have no clinical experience.

Flexible shifts (from one a week to many more) are available at 37 vaccination sites and pop-up clinics across Cheshire. Find out more and register your interest here.

How to get a COVID-19 test

Avoiding fraud

To help protect yourself and your family members from fraud, please remember the following points:

  • The NHS will never ask for bank details, PIN numbers or passwords when contacting you about a vaccination. You will never be charged for the vaccine.
  • Any communication which claims to be from the NHS but asks for payment, or bank details, is fraudulent and can be ignored. If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up.
  • If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
  • Where a victim is vulnerable, and particularly if you are worried that someone has or might come to your house, report it to the Police either online or by calling 101.
