Sheffield Vaccination Centre now offering COVID-19 vaccine to young people aged 16 and over.

Young people aged 16 and over can now get their COVID-19 vaccine at the Sheffield walk-in vaccination clinic at Longley Lane.

The Sheffield NHS Vaccination Centre located at Longley Lane (adjacent to the Northern General Hospital), Sheffield, S5 7JN will be open for young people aged 16+ to get their vaccination, 8am -5.30pm, seven days a week.

There will be enclosed booths to respect privacy, no long queues and a friendly team of nurses and other NHS staff who will be happy to answer any questions.

Dr Jennifer Hill, Medical Director (Operations) at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said:

“We’re delighted to be opening our doors at Longley Lane for young people aged 16 and 17 to receive their COVID-19 vaccine. Our route out of this pandemic is by getting as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible and so our Longley Lane walk-in vaccination centre will make it as easy as possible for young people to fit getting vaccinated into their busy lives.”

No appointment or ID will be required to receive the vaccine, and there is no need to be registered with a GP.

You can also book an appointment if you prefer by using the online NHS COVID-19 vaccination website https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/ or by calling 119 free of charge. You may also receive an invitation from your local GP vaccination practice and you can choose to take up this option instead if you wish.

We would ask that where possible young people should go into the centre alone (unless assistance is required) so that social distancing can be maintained within the Centre. Young people will also need to give their own consent for the vaccination and will be asked a set of questions to gain this when they attend.
