All patients with a mobile number on our records who are eligible for the vaccine should receive a text with a link to book. Please use this link to book your appointment. It is straightforward, and no login is required. The link from texts received a few weeks ago will still work to book into future dates.

There are 3 types of booster for the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine:

  • A 1st booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is available for everyone aged 16 and over, and some children aged 12 to 15, who have had a 2nd dose of the vaccine at least 3 months ago.
  • A booster dose (4th dose) of the COVID-19 vaccine is available for anyone who had a severely weakened immune system when they had their first 2 doses and who had a 3rd dose of the vaccine at least 3 months ago.
  • A spring booster of the COVID-19 vaccine is available to people aged 75 and over, people who live in a care home for older people, or people aged 12 and over who have a weakened immune system.

If you have not had your first, second or booster dose yet, you’re still eligible and can book anytime.

If you are in the groups mentioned above and do not have a mobile number on your record, you have not received a link or the link does not work, then please contact us to book on 0113 295 3460.

Thank you for your support

Once again we are having to redeploy staff from the clinical, support and management teams to support the vaccine effort. Staff shortages may mean that some things take longer than usual.  Thank you for your understanding.

We have received so much positive and grateful feedback from patients and the community about what we are doing. Thankyou, it is very heartening for our staff.
