The NHS has provided Covid-19 vaccinations free of charge to all adults and children aged 5 and over. After 30th June 2023, vaccinations will only be available for people who are at higher risk from severe Covid-19, and for most people they will usually only be available seasonally. If you’ve only had one Covid-19 vaccination, or none at all, make sure you get yours before 30th June.
If you don’t have an NHS number, you can get your vaccine at a Covid-19 vaccination walk-in centre or at a Community Pharmacy. They may be able to vaccinate you, arrange an appointment, or advise where you can get your vaccine. If you are registered with a GP, you can book online at www.nhs.uk/COVIDvaccine or call 119.

Everyone is entitled to register with a GP practice free of charge as a permanent patient, including people who don’t have ID, proof of address or immigration status. You can also register as a temporary resident if you expect to be in an area for up to 3 months. If you need help or advice when registering with a GP practice, you can call the NHS on 0300 311 2233.
This article is for people who would like to get a Covid-19 vaccination. The NBTA doesn’t have an opinion on the Covid-19 vaccine. We believe that boaters should have equal access to healthcare no matter what it is. Too often our community is denied the equal access to health care. If you have any trouble accessing a GP or other healthcare please contact the NBTA or use this NBTA helpsheet on registering with a GP without a fixed address
