#GetVaxxed. Enjoy being back

Enjoy being back by getting double vaxxed. You can take part in the activities you have missed with the confidence that the Covid-19 vaccine will reduce the chances of you suffering from the Covid-19 virus.

We can now enjoy being back and can start to take part in many of the activities we haven’t been able to for what feels like such a long time:

  • Going on holiday
  • Going to sports events
  • Meeting family and friends in larger numbers and indoors
  • Going to nightclubs
  • Enjoying live music and festivals

The virus is still a concern so we must still be cautious. Getting double vaxxed offers you the best protection from becoming seriously ill with Covid and is a way for you to feel confident in taking part in activities again.

If you are aged 16+ and you live in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, you will find details on this page about how to get your vaccine.


How to get your jab

The process for getting your vaccination depends on your age:

If you are aged 17¾ years and over:

  1. Book using the National Booking Service or 119, or
  2. Your GP practice will contact you, or
  3. You can attend a drop-in clinic without needing an appointment.

If you are aged between 16 and 17¾:

  1. You can attend a drop-in clinic, specified as being suitable for 16 and 17 year olds, without needing an appointment.

If you’re pregnant or under 40 you’ll usually be offered appointments for the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines

If you’re under 18, you’ll only be offered the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine

Two doses of the vaccine are required for most people; the second dose is given 8 to 12 weeks after the first. Anyone aged under 18 will currently only receive one dose.


Drop-in Clinics

You can attend a drop-in clinic even if you aren’t registered with a GP or you don’t have an NHS number. Anyone who had their first dose at least eight weeks ago can attend the clinics to have their second dose of the same vaccine.
