The NHS in Lincolnshire has started vaccinating. We are pleased we are one of the first areas in the country to be able to offer the vaccine to patients. Please be assured that you will be contacted by the NHS, not necessarily your practice, when it is your time to attend for the vaccination. In the meantime you do not need to do anything and there is no need for you to contact the practice.

Travelling to a COVID-19 Vaccination Centre
Before you make you vaccination appointment, there are a few things to consider, such as:
- how you'll get there
- what day and time is likely to be easiest for you
- can someone in your household or support bubble take you
- use public transport if needed - bus and taxi operators are following covid-safe guidelines but make sure you wear your mask and sanitise your hands before and after your journey
- if you need accessible transport, many taxi companies have suitable vehicles
If you need further advice on transport options, The Lincolnshire Transport Helpline provides information and advice on a wide range of transport options including community car schemes and CallConnect - find out your travel options here or call 0345 456 4474 (Mon-Fri 9am – 6pm, Sat 9.30am – 4pm).
If you book your vaccination appointment and then find you can't get there, you can re-arrange your appointment for a different time or venue.
If none of these options work for you, don't worry, other options are being developed and you will be invited to have your vaccine elsewhere at a later date.
