Covid-19 vaccination

Page updated 24 Sept 2021

Kent and Medway Covid-19 vaccination services

Covid-19 vaccination services are available through bookable appointments and walk-in clinics.

Vaccinations for children and young people, aged 12 to 17

Dedicated Kent and Medway information on the vaccination offer for people aged 12 to 17-years-old is here.

Walk-in vaccine clinics

The map and boxes below show local walk-in services; more dates are regularly added, so please keep checking this page. Not all walk-in services offer boosters or vaccines for 16 and 17-year-olds, so please check the details before attending.

Bookable appointments

There are many sites across Kent and Medway offering bookable appointments. Blue dots on the map below show these, or you can see the closest options for you when you book online

If a site in Kent and Medway does not appear when you try to book online, it means all current slots are taken, but more are regularly added. Please check back later. You should not need to travel outside of Kent and Medway to have a vaccination.

A small number of eligible patients may find the national booking service does not recognise them. If you have tried to book via the system but have been unsuccessful, please contact kmccg.covidvaccine@nhs.net.

Booster vaccinations

The booster rollout will be split into two stages. Stage one, which is due to run from 17 September to 1 November, will see the following groups offered a booster vaccine;

  • care home residents
  • those who are clinically extremely vulnerable (including family they live with)
  • those aged 50 or over
  • front line health and social care workers.

The booster vaccine can only be administered at least six months after your second dose. This means that although you may sit within stage one of the booster rollout, you will need to wait until it has been six months since your second dose.

Anyone eligible for the booster dose of the vaccine will be contacted by the NHS. This could be by letter, text message or a phone call from your GP. We need to prioritise those who are most at risk, so please wait to be contacted.

The booster will be one jab. It has been confirmed by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) that the booster does not need to be the same brand as your earlier jabs. Most vaccine supply in Kent and Medway is Pfizer.
