COVID-19 vaccination service

Last chance to get your spring vaccination - walk-ins available around Dorset

Until the end of June, adults aged 75 and older, residents in care homes for older adults and individuals 6 months and over who have a weakened immune system can top up protection from COVID-19 with a spring vaccine.

You can simply walk in at a site offering vaccinations near you or book an appointment at your preferred clinic. 

If you or someone you know is registered with the GP as housebound and waiting to hear from the NHS about the COVID-19 vaccination, we want to reassure you that the NHS will be in touch to arrange your visit. 


Book your appointment on the National Booking Service or with your local GP who may use a local booking service. 


Where can I get my COVID-19 vaccination?

If you are eligible you can get vaccinated at any of our vaccination clinics based in community hospitals, a number of pharmacies and your GP practice may offer you the vaccine if they are providing this service to their patients.

COVID-19 vaccinations for children and young people

Clinics for children and young people

The COVID-19 vaccine continues to offer the best protection for people particularly at risk of serious illness from COVID-19, due to a health condition or because of a weakened immune system. 

Children's clinics are avaliable during the May half term at the following places: 

  • Wednesday 29 May at Kings Park Vaccination Centre, Gloucester Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6JF

  • Thursday 30 May at Langdon Unit, Bridport Community Hospital, Hospital Ln, Bridport DT6 5DR

Opening times at all three sites:

For children aged 5-11yrs olds appointments available between 9.00 am – 1pm

For children aged 12-17yr old appointments available between 1.30 - 5.30pm

Booking is essential.

You can check your child's eligibility and book online at nhs.uk/get-vaccine. You do not need to be invited to book your COVID spring vaccine.

 

Sensory rooms 

Relaxing, dedicated spaces are available at our King's park and Linden unit vaccination centres for young people and adults with learning disabilities or severe mental health conditions or anyone that needs a little extra support. 

Our sensory rooms provide a calm, quiet space away from the communal waiting area that may be noisy or cause anxiety. Find out more in our news story.

The advice on eligibility for children and young people is similar to last spring, but with the age of individuals who are immunosuppressed now eligible from aged 6 months and over – compared with 5 years and over in 2023. This follows updated advice last April on COVID-19 vaccination of children aged 6 months to 4 years in a clinical risk group.

 


Additional support

Our staff are on hand to talk through any additional needs you or your loved one may have prior or during your appointment. 

Quiet rooms avaliable at King's Park Boscombe and Linden Unit in Wemouth community vaccination centres
