The NHS HULL CCG know people are eager to get vaccinated and they will let you know as soon as it’s your turn. Please wait to be contacted, they are working as hard as they can to vaccinate people in Hull as quickly as possible.
COVID-19 booster vaccines
In Hull, COVID-19 booster vaccinations are available by appointment only. There are lots of appointments available and all who are eligible will receive their booster vaccine.
Find out if you are eligible here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-booster-vaccine/
GP practices are currently booking in patients for their booster vaccination – your practice will contact you – please don’t contact your practice as this may impact services for other patients.
Eligible patients can also book a booster vaccine appointment at one of the vaccination centres or pharmacies available via the National Booking Service. These appointments can be booked online at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by calling 119 anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week.
Appointments are regularly added to the National Booking Service, and if you are unable to book a slot at your preferred location, please try again later when more appointments have been added.
Booster vaccines and flu jabs
Flu vaccination is important because:
- more people are likely to get flu this winter as fewer people will have built up natural immunity to it during the COVID-19 pandemic
- if you get flu and COVID-19 at the same time, research shows you’re more likely to be seriously ill
- getting vaccinated against flu and COVID-19 will provide protection for you and those around you for both these serious illnesses
If you’ve had COVID-19, it’s safe to have the flu vaccine. It will still be effective at helping to prevent flu.
Some people may be eligible for both the flu and the COVID-19 booster vaccines.
If you are offered both vaccines, it’s safe to have them at the same time. Find out if you’re eligible for a free flu jab here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/flu-influenza-vaccine/
Vaccinations for 12-15-year-olds are being delivered through the school immunisation programme. Every school will receive a visit by end of November. To support the school immunisation service, a secondary offer is being established across the country. Some appointments are currently available to book via the National Booking Service with more appointments due to be added shortly.
1st and 2nd dose vaccines
For those who are still yet to receive their 1st or 2nd dose vaccination and wish to do so, an appointment can be booked via the National Booking Service online or by calling 119. You can also contact your GP to arrange a 1st or 2nd dose vaccine. 16 and 17 year olds can now receive a second dose of the vaccine. Find out more here.

About the vaccine
An effective vaccine is the best way to protect people from COVID-19. Following extensive trials, several safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines have been approved in the UK and the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme is well underway in Hull.
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.
How will I get my vaccine?
You can book your vaccine via the national booking service here. Alternatively you can call 119.
Local GPs across the Humber, Coast and Vale have filmed an important message in multiple languages* to encourage vaccine confidence and dispel vaccine myths and misinformation. The videos can be viewed on YouTube here.
