Notice on reduced walk-in capacity
COVID-19 vaccination sites in Hull are currently booking in booster vaccinations across the city. If you receive a text message from the National NHS Service or your GP practice, please follow the links and book in accordingly.
All care home residents, those who are at clinically extremely vulnerable and at risk are being prioritised – then moving onto anyone who is over 50 years of age. Please bear with us, you will be contacted to be booked in for your booster if you are in these groups and eligible via your practice or the national service. These groups of people become eligible for a booster 6 months after their second vaccine.
In order that we can meet the demand for the booked appointments, the availability of walk in of sites has reduced considerably.
If you are yet to take up the offer of a first or second dose of the vaccine, please book in via the National Booking Service.
Those aged 16 and 17 are still able to attend the Witham Pharmacy for walk-ins – and they can also book through the National Booking Service

This is the biggest vaccination programme the NHS has ever undertaken. It is a huge challenge, and there will be bumps in the road.
Demonstrating your vaccination status
People in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from:
It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.
If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.
GP practices and the CCG are not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.
When you’re planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get proof of your vaccination status before you leave.
