Booking your COVID-19 vaccination

To stop coronavirus from spreading, those who are eligible for a Covid vaccine are encouraged to access one of the vaccination clinics across the city.

It’s important to have both doses and your booster, if you are eligible.

The Covid vaccines have been thoroughly tested and have met strict safety standards in the UK. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) are in charge of approving vaccines and they ensure that they are of high quality and are safe for use.

The vaccination programme in Manchester has been a great success thanks to the efforts of patients, volunteers, vaccinators, and everyone in between.

When it’s your turn, you will be contacted and asked to book an appointment. Details of how you can book your vaccination can be found below.

For more information and updates about the Covid vaccination pop-up clinics taking place, please visit the Manchester City Council website.
