EASTER

Families can now get vaccinated together at two vaccination sites over the Easter holidays

Restrictions may have ended but coronavirus has not.

Meeting outdoors this Easter will help keep you and your loved ones safe. The fresh air will help lower the risk of spreading covid-19 and other respiratory infections, like flu.

And, while you’re out and about the whole family can get vaccinated at one of the family clinics at Mansfield Vaccination Centre or the Forest Recreation Vaccination Centre. Parents or guardians can bring 5-11s to the sites to be vaccinated at specialist child-friendly clinics and also receive their own vaccinations, including first, second or booster jabs at the same time.

Family clinic opening times:

Mansfield Vaccination Centre, Chesterfield Road, Mansfield, NG19 7BH

  • Tuesday: 3.30 to 7.20pm
  • Thursday: 3.30 to 7.20pm
  • Saturday: 2.00 to 7.30pm
  • Sunday: 2.00 to 7.30pm

Forest Recreation Vaccination Centre, Forest Recreation Ground, Gregory Blvd, Nottingham, NG7 6AQ

  • Wednesday: 2.30pm-7.20pm

If it’s not an emergency don’t go to A&E – use NHS 111

NHS 111

The NHS encourages the public to use 111 online first, or urgent treatment centres, GPs and pharmacies if they have a minor illness or injury that is not life-threatening.

NHS 111 online can tell you:

  • where to get help for your symptoms, if you’re not sure what to do
  • how to find general health information and advice
  • where to get an emergency supply of your prescribed medicine
  • how to get a repeat prescription.

Overseas Vaccination Vaildation Service

vaccine validation

If you had Covid-19 vaccinations abroad you can have your NHS records updated.

An Overseas Vaccination Validation Service is available at the Forest Recreation Ground Vaccination Centre and King’s Mill Hospital Vaccination Hub.

This service enables people to book appointments to show evidence for any coronavirus vaccinations they’ve had outside of England. This is so the NHS can securely update vaccination records, which in turn can enable people to get an NHS Covid Pass.

The service is open to anyone over the age of 16 who has received vaccinations in another country.

Keep loved ones safe while visiting care homes

Care home guidance

All visitors to care homes should wear a face mask.

You should not enter a care home if you are feeling unwell, even with a negative Covid-19 test, and are fully vaccinated, because other viruses such as flu and norovirus can be just as dangerous to residents in care homes.

Let’s keep our loved ones safe.
