UPDATE TUESDAY 14TH SEPTEMBER

The latest information we have from Kirklees council kindly requests that you visit this link https://www.nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-walk-in-coronavirus-covid-19-vaccination-site to find an up to date list of your nearest venue for walk-in appointments.

We welcome any feedback and information from local centres wishing to share opening times on our website.

UPDATE TUESDAY 17TH AUGUST

Covid jabs underway for 16 and 17-year-olds in Kirklees   

 Sixteen and seventeen-year-olds in Kirklees can now get their COVID-19 vaccine ahead of going back to school or college in September. 

Following the recent recommendations from the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), the local NHS has been working with partners to ensure all 16 and 17-year-olds can get vaccinated as quickly and as easily as possible. 

To get your jab, you can either visit one of the walk-in services that are able to jab 16 and 17-year-olds or wait to be contacted by your GP.  

Centres offering walk-in appointments for 16 and 17-year-olds this week include Honley Village Hall, Slaithwaite Civic Hall, and the John Smith’s Stadium. You do not need to be registered with a GP or have an NHS number. 

You can use the new NHS site finder to find a centre near you that over 16s can attend: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/find-a-walk-in-coronavirus-covid-19-vaccination-site/ 

Some GP practices will also be offering vaccinations and are contacting people to arrange appointments. Please wait to be invited rather than contacting your practice.   

Steve Brennan, Senior Responsible Officer for the vaccination programme in Kirklees said, “It’s fantastic that we can now offer this life-saving protection to 16 and 17-year-olds in Kirklees. It’s been a difficult 15 months for many people, and particularly hard for young people who’ve missed out on so many things that are part of their normal social life.”

Rachel Spencer-Henshall, Strategic Director for Public Health at Kirklees Council, said, “I am delighted to tell you that the 16 to 17-year-old cohort is now being offered the vaccine.  The vaccine rollout is having a really positive impact.”

In line with JCVI guidance, 16 and 17 year olds will be vaccinated with a single dose of Pfizer vaccine.  

Children aged 12 to 15 who are clinically vulnerable to covid because they have specific underlying health conditions or who live with adults who are at increased risk of serious illness from the virus are also being contacted by the NHS and invited for their vaccine. Parents and carers of children should wait to be contacted either by their GP or specialist hospital team. 

Anyone 18 or over can also use the site finder to find a local walk-in service or book an appointment using the National Booking Service at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination

      1. Not really as it only specifies time, date and location no info on 15th regarding vaccines being given at specific sites.

        1. Hi, sorry that wasn’t the answer you were looking for.

          From what we understand Kirklees does not have any Moderna vaccine and the guidance says you should try to book an appointment where you received your first dose of Moderna. We are aware that Ellen Road in Leeds has the Moderna vaccine and you would be able to access that site via the national vaccination booking website: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ or 119.

  8. As these pop-up centres are doing 2nd vaccines too – how long do you have to wait until after your first one (Pfizer) to get the 2nd? Is it 3 weeks+ or do I have to do the full 12 weeks?

    1. Hi Jonny, from the information we have received it’s advised to leave 8 weeks between doses. However, if you go to a pop up clinic you can discuss your request to have your second dose sooner with a clinician.

  9. I’ve had my first moderna vaccine will you be offering a pop up / walk in clinic for 2nd moderna vaccines please?
    Thank you
