On Thursday (March 11), the local covid-19 vaccination booking system will open to residents aged 55 and over.

From 9am people aged 55 and over will be able to book their Covid-19 vaccination appointment by visiting the local booking link or by calling the local booking line on 0115 883 4640 between 8am – 8pm during weekdays and 9am – 5pm on weekends. Over 55s can also call the National Booking Service on 119 or use the national booking link to book an appointment at the large-scale Mansfield Vaccination Centre or their nearest pharmacy-led site.

If you are aware of a person over 55, or in a previous cohort that has not received their letter please urge them to book their vaccine as soon as possible.

Message from Dr John Brewin 


Dr John Brewin, Chief Executive, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Joint Senior Responsible Officer for Covid-19 Vaccine, said: “We are pleased to be able to invite everyone who is over the age of 55 forward for their Covid-19 vaccination.

“I would like to assure you that we have plenty of vaccines available and there is enough for everyone so please do book your appointment as soon as possible if you are eligible.

“Anyone who is eligible can book in for their vaccination via the local booking site or by calling 0115 883 4640. I would urge anyone in this category to take up vaccination to help protect themselves against Covid-19.

“People in the priority groups which have already been announced have not missed their chance to get jabbed. If you haven’t yet taken up the offer, please do come forward and make an appointment – the vaccine is safe, simple, and will offer you and those around you the best protection against this virus. It is never too late to change your mind if you have previously said no.”
