Last minute information on how to get a COVID-19 booster vaccine, if you are eligible

The CMC Patient Participation Group are aware that not all Charlbury Medical Centre patients who are eligible for the Spring COVID -19 booster vaccine were able to get vaccinated by the CMC in May.

Those eligible for the booster vaccine are as follows:

• Anyone aged 75 years old or over (i.e. 75 or more on or before 30 June 2023)

• Anyone living in a care home for older adults

• Anyone aged 5 years old or over who has a weakened immune system

We understand that it will not be possible to book a booster vaccine after 30 June 2023, so if you are eligible, if you have not been vaccinated and want to be, you will need to act quickly.

How to book a vaccine appointment

If you can access the internet – or you who know someone who can help you do this – you can book online by visiting this site:


You can phone 119 to book by phone. Ring 119 and when you have pressed Option 1 because you are calling from England, you should then press Option 1 again to get to the booking service.

You will need the following information to hand:

• Name and address

• Post code

• Date of birth

• NHS Number

The booking service will find you an appointment at whatever is the nearest vaccination centre..


There is a walk-in vaccination centre at Cleggs Pharmacy in Wantage (01235 763046), The address is Unit 3, Kings Walk, Limborough Road, Wantage OX12 9AJ. We have checked with the Pharmacy and they confirm that they are offering COVID vaccines, subject to staff availability. Their vaccination times are between 9.15 and 5.30 Monday to Friday and between 9.15 and 4.30 on Saturdays (no service on Sundays). At the moment they are advertising this service up until 21 June 2023.

How to get to your appointment

If you need help with transport to any venue at which you have booked an appointment to get a vaccine, you can call the All Together In Charlbury (ATIC) call centre number – 01993 776277 – to see if ATIC can help. Please give as much notice as possible – ATIC cannot respond to same day requests and usually needs at least 2 days’ notice.

If you know someone who may need this information and is not likely to see it on this website, please tell them about it. It can be downloaded from the bottom of this article.
