Missed appointments

If you have been offered an appointment for a Coronavirus vaccination but had to cancel or you just weren’t able to make the slot offered, you can book another appointment by:

Second vaccination 

Previously, the NHS had offered second doses up to 12 weeks after your first which is within the time period experts had recommended.  

However, due to new variants of Coronavirus, those at greatest risk can now get their second dose at around 8 weeks after their first. 

The NHS will contact you with information on how you can book an earlier appointment. 

If it has been 12 - 14 weeks since your first jab and you still have not been contacted for a second appointment, please contact the location where you had your first vaccine to arrange another appointment. 

If it has been 14 weeks or more since your first vaccine and you still have not received an appointment for your second dose please contact the NHS Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group Customer Services team by emailing:

They will work with your GP surgery to provide alternatives. 

Third vaccination

The Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisation (JCVI) has recommended that people aged 12 years and over who were immunosuppressed (have a weakened immune system) at the time of their first and second COVID vaccines (primary vaccination) should receive a third dose of COVID-19 vaccine. 

You will be contacted if you are eligible for your third dose with further information provided.

What is the difference between this third dose and a booster dose?

This vaccination is being called a ‘third dose’ as it is being recommended as part of the primary COVID-19 vaccination.

The first two doses of the vaccine also make up your primary vaccination.

This third dose is only being offered to people who are less likely to have had a strong immune response to the first two doses.

The booster programme is separate from the third dose and is is being offered to certain vulnerable groups:
