COVID-19 vaccine

Coronavirus vaccination in Northamptonshire

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus. 

Who can get the COVID-19 vaccine?

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.

In Northamptonshire, the vaccine is being offered by appointment in hospitals, at local vaccination clinics run by GPs, and at our Vaccination Centre in Moulton Park, Northampton.

Vaccinations are now being given to the following groups:

  • people aged 80 and over
  • some people aged 70 and over
  • some people who are clinically extremely vulnerable
  • people who live or work in care homes
  • health and social care workers at high risk

The vaccination programme will be expanded as supplies of the vaccine increase, and the order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

Please wait to be contacted. The NHS will let you know when it's your turn to have the vaccine. It is important not to contact the NHS for a vaccination before then.

More information about the COVID-19 vaccination programme including downloadable leaflets and frequently asked questions can be found on the Northamptonshire County Council website
