Easy read – COVID-19 Vaccinations in Dorset

I am scared of needles

We know that lots of people want to know about the COVID-19 vaccination.

We want to make sure that everyone gets the right information.

The COVID-19 vaccination is safe. It is the best protection against coronavirus.

This is the biggest vaccination programme that the NHS has ever done.

Dorset have worked hard to make sure the most vulnerable people get the vaccine first.

Thank you for supporting the NHS.

When will I get my vaccine?

The NHS is following national guidance.

This means the vaccine is being given out to the most vulnerable people first.

Where will I get my vaccine?

There are a few different ways people are getting their vaccination.

These are:

  • GP-led vaccination services Your doctors surgery will contact you about getting the vaccine. You might not have the vaccine at your doctors surgery.
  • Hospital Hubs At the moment these are for people who work in health and social care.
  • A door to door service Someone will come to your home and give you the vaccine.
    This is for people in care homes and people who cannot leave their home.
  • A large vaccination centre at Bournemouth International Centre (BIC)

Do not book an appointment here if you have an appointment with one of the other services
