Covid-19 vaccination

Page updated 22 July 2021

The Covid-19 vaccine is being offered at local vaccination centres run by GPs, at large vaccination centres, in some pharmacies and some hospitals. Local details are in the map below.

All adults aged 18 or over can now get vaccinated against COVID-19. If you're turning 18 soon you can also book for a date on or after your birthday.

You do not need to wait to be contacted by the NHS. If you were contacted but have not booked your appointments, you're still eligible and can book your appointments anytime.

When you book you'll only be offered appointments for vaccines that are recommended for you based on your age, any underlying health conditions, and whether you're pregnant.


Kent and Medway Covid-19 vaccination services

Covid-19 vaccination services are currently available through a range of bookable appointments and walk-in options. The map below shows all of our vaccination services. For specific details of walk-in locations, dates and times see this page. 

Using the national booking service

There are over 20 sites across Kent and Medway bookable via the national booking service. If a site in Kent and Medway does not appear when you try to book it means all current slots are taken, but more are added regularly. Please check back later. You should not need to travel outside of Kent and Medway to get 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.

As the Covid-19 vaccination rollout continues, there will be some changes to the venues where vaccinations are given. Please click here for more information.

There are now four large-scale vaccination centres running in Kent and Medway:

Appointments are booked either online or by calling 119.

 

If you recieve a letter or text inviting you to book through the national service you can ignore the invitation if:

  • you have already had a first vaccine from a GP run service - you will need to have the second dose through the same service.
  • you do not want to travel to the large centres – you will need to contact your local service (GP).

If you do book online or by phone for one of the large centres, and the centre closest to you does not appear as an option it means there are no slots currently available. You can try again later. You do not have to travel to a centre that is a long way away.

Find out what to expect at the large vaccination centres.

These centres are run by Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust.
