Coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination 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.

  • 12 -15 year olds

    All ‘healthy’ 12 -15 year olds are eligible for one dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

    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, this will conclude at the end of November 2021.

    As parent or guardian, you must first provide your consent for your child to be vaccinated. Details on how to do this can be found in the letter you will have received via your child’s school.

    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.

    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.

    Walk-in sessions

    We are also offering a number of dedicated walk-in sessions prior to Christmas at our Mass Vaccination Centres at the Lincolnshire Showground, and at PRSA, Boston – details of these sessions can be found within the letter sent via school or listed below.

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

    Please note second dose vaccinations for 16 and 17 year olds are not currently available on a walk-in basis.

    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.

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

  • Booster vaccination

    The booster vaccination, which is typically Pfizer or Moderna, is currently available for people:

    • Aged 40 and over;
    • Who live and work in care homes;
    • Who are frontline health and social care workers;
    • Who are aged 16 and over with a health condition that puts them at high risk of getting seriously ill from covid;
    • Who are aged 16 and over and a main carer for someone at high risk from covid;
    • Who are aged 16 and over who live with someone who is more likely to get infections – such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis

    Appointments can be booked via the National Booking System or by calling 119, five months after your second dose. You can receive your vaccination six 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.

    Booster vaccinations are currently not available on a walk-in basis in Lincolnshire.

  • 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 PRSA Boston between 8am–7pm, seven days a week, and please ensure you bring your letter of eligibility. 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.

  • First and second doses – 18 years and over

    It is not too late to have either a first or second dose of the covid vaccination. Anyone over the age of 18 is eligible for both a first and second dose. This is a free vaccination and you do not need to be registered with a GP.

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

    Second doses are offered at eight weeks or later following first dose. If the gap is longer there is no need to restart the course.

    We will be unable to vaccinate you within 28 days of a positive covid test.

    Mixing of vaccines for first and second doses is now permitted.
