If you are invited to book an appointment but you can’t travel to one of these large sites, you can instead choose to wait to be invited to a local centre. NHS England confirmed there are nearly 1,000 local centres opening across England.

Coventry and Rugby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have confirmed 20 local centres are planned across Coventry and Rugby.  If you want to receive your vaccine at a local centre, you should wait to receive an invite from your GP or local NHS Trust.
