In the first instance, if you have online access please book your COVID vaccination by visiting: www.nhs.uk – Book or manage a coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination. You can find our site at Nescot College by searching the postcode KT17 3DS. Alternatively, you can ring 119 to make an appointment locally.
If you are happy to attend our site at NESCOT, you can also call 01372 232001 although please be advised that lines may be very busy. Please note, we cannot amend or cancel appointments made elsewhere. For adults aged 18+ and with no known allergies, the vaccine available will be Moderna Spikevax.
We will not be co-administering flu and COVID boosters at NESCOT. As before, invites are likely to be phased by cohorts based on age and clinical need.
