Coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccinations in Lincolnshire

Franklin Hall vaccination centre in Spilsby

The roll out of the vaccination continues to be a collective effort across Lincolnshire, with people from all walks of life playing a part in making sure our communities are protected as quickly as possible.

How do I book my vaccination appointment today?

There are many ways to get your vaccination. This page is updated daily, providing the latest information about how to do that across the whole of Lincolnshire. Sometimes vaccination sites will show that new appointment bookings aren’t currently available. This will be temporary (due to such factors as staff shift patterns etc), and the final column will always show other ways you can get your jab until that changes. At sites that list a ‘walk in’ option, please be aware that this may involve waiting, depending on demand.

If you have a COVID-19 vaccination booked and you can no longer attend, please cancel it if so it can be offered to someone else.

During February the opening times at Princess Royal Sports Arena, Boston and the Lincolnshire Showground will change to 2.30pm to 7.30pm seven days a week. We would advise people to book an appointment where possible as walk-ins are on a strictly first come first served basis.

    Positive COVID-19 test result?

    • Aged 18 and over - we will be unable to vaccinate you within 28 days of a positive covid test

    • Aged 12-17 - we will be unable to vaccinate you within 12 weeks of a positive covid test.

    Dedicated walk-in vaccination sessions for pregnant women and people who are needle-phobic

    These dedicated sessions are to provide the opportunity for pregnant women to have a discussion with a midwife about the covid vaccination, and to provide a quiet environment should they want to get vaccinated. Similarly, with the walk-in sessions for people who are needle-phobic, the purpose is to provide the opportunity to attend for vaccination during a quieter time at PRSA and at the Lincolnshire Showground, when there’s also less time pressure around the length of each appointment.

    The sessions, which will be run on a walk-in basis (no appointment necessary), will run as follows:

    Pregnancy walk-in sessions:

    📍Lincolnshire Showground
    • Wednesday 2nd February 9am-1pm
    • Thursday 3rd February 9am-1pm

    📍Princess Royal Sports Arena, Boston:
    • Tuesday 1st February 9am-1pm
    • Wednesday 2nd January 9am-1pm

    Needle-phobic walk-in sessions:

    📍Lincolnshire Showground
    • Tuesday 1st February 9am-1pm
    • Thursday 3rd February 9am-1pm

    📍Princess Royal Sports Arena, Boston
    • Monday 31st January 9am-1pm
    • Thursday 3rd February 9am-1pm

  • Booster vaccinations
    The booster vaccination, which is typically Pfizer or Moderna, is currently available for people:
    • Aged 16 and over who have had a 2nd dose of the covid vaccine at least three months ago;
    • Who live and work in care homes;
    • Who are frontline health and social care workers

    Appointments can be booked via the National Booking System or by calling 119. You can receive your vaccination 3 months after your second dose. However, we will be unable to vaccinate you within 28 days of a positive covid test. Alternatively, your GP practice may call you if they are taking part in the covid vaccination programme. Please ensure you attend when called forwards.

    Walk-in booster vaccinations

    Due to the success of our booster campaign locally, we are temporarily changing the opening hours of our two Mass Vaccination Centres at Princess Royal Sports Arena, Boston and the Lincolnshire Showground until 31st January 2022. The sites will operate from 2pm to 7.30pm weekdays and the hours at weekends remain unchanged from 8am until 7.30pm. During February the opening times at Princess Royal Sports Arena, Boston and the Lincolnshire Showground will change to 2.30pm to 7.30pm seven days a week.

    We would advise people to book an appointment where possible as walk-ins are on a strictly first come, first served basis and you might have to wait.

  • 12 -15 year olds first and second doses
    All 12 -15 year olds are now eligible for a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine 12 weeks after the first.

    Those children who are clinically ‘at risk’ or who live with someone who is immunosuppressed are eligible for two doses of the Pfizer vaccine given eight weeks apart and will be invited back for vaccination.

    We have offered a school-based programme during the autumn term for pupils attending Lincolnshire schools aged 12-15. The initial round has now finished. We are currently planning a second school-based programme that will start in January 2022. More details will be available shortly.

    We will be unable to vaccinate you within 12 weeks of a positive covid test.

    Appointments can be booked via the National Booking System or by calling 119.

    2022 Walk-in sessions and appointments

    From Monday 3rd January to Sunday 27th March 2022, walk-ins and appointments (via National Booking System) will be available for first and second doses at PRSA, Boston, and at the Lincolnshire Showground, between 4pm and 7pm Monday to Friday.

    At weekends, the following times will apply:

    Lincolnshire Showground:

    • Saturday 29th January 10am-7pm
    • Sunday 30th January 10am-7pm

    PRSA, Boston:

    • Every Saturday and Sunday, 2pm-5pm.

    One recurring question being asked by parents/guardians of 12-15 year-olds who have been vaccinated is “my child cannot use the NHS app to prove they have been vaccinated, can you provide us with proof of vaccination?”.

    You will receive an email confirming your child has been vaccinated. We appreciate the NHS app is not available to those under 16, this is a government decision and not something we have any control over, but we hope the confirmation email will help.

    Consent

    In the New Year parents/guardians of 12-15 year-olds will receive a letter from their child’s school that will include details on how to consent for your child to be vaccinated (as with the previous round of vaccinations). However, provided you are present with your child when they are vaccinated at PRSA, Boston or the Lincolnshire Showground, you will now be able to consent in person.

  • 16 and 17 year olds
    All 16 and 17 year-olds are now eligible for two doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

    Second doses are offered at eight weeks or longer for those that are clinically vulnerable and at 12 weeks or later for ‘healthy’ 16 and 17 year olds.

    The booster vaccination, which is typically Pfizer or Moderna, is currently also available for people aged 16 and over who have had a 2nd dose of the covid vaccine at least three months ago.

    We will be unable to vaccinate you within 12 weeks of a positive covid test.

    Appointments can be booked via the National Booking System or by calling 119.

    Alternatively, your GP practice may call you if they are taking part in the covid vaccination programme.

    Walk-ins for people aged 16 and 17 are also available at Princess Royal Sports Arena, Boston and the Lincolnshire Showground.

  • Third primary vaccination
    A third dose of the covid vaccination, typically Pfizer, is available for people aged 12 and over, eight weeks or later after a second dose, who have a weakened immune system/are immunosuppressed when they had their first two doses, including people who had or have:

    • A blood cancer, such as leukaemia or lymphoma;
    • A weakened immune system due to a treatment, such as steroid medicine, biological therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy;
    • An organ or bone marrow transplant
    • A condition that means you have a very high risk of getting infections
    • A condition or treatment your specialist advises makes you eligible for a third dose

    A third primary dose is not the same as a booster.

    If eligible you should have received a letter from the NHS or been provided with a letter from your hospital consultant or GP confirming your eligibility.

    Appointments for third primary doses are not bookable through 119 or via the National Booking System.

    Please walk into our Mass Vaccination Centres at the Lincolnshire Showground or Princess Royal Sports Arena, Boston and please ensure you bring your letter of eligibility.
