Book your vaccination appointment
You can get vaccinated if you're:
- book an appointment at the Vaccination Centre at Fort Regent
- go to the Vaccination Centre during walk-in times
- attend a rock up mobile clinic (first dose only)
Appointments will be at the COVID-19 Vaccination Centre at Fort Regent. You'll receive an SMS or email confirming your appointment details.
Book a vaccination appointment
When booking appointments, make sure you have the following information available:
- name, address, phone number
- Social Security number
- date of birth
- letter from the vaccination team if you're clinically extremely vulnerable or clinically at risk (take this letter to your appointment)
For those who don't have access to the internet, you can:
- ask family, friends and neighbours to book on your behalf
- call the coronavirus helpline
If you're in an eligible tier for vaccination alongside eligible family members or friends, you can book an appointment together and receive your vaccine at the same time.
Group bookings are currently limited to two people per group. If you're booking on behalf of someone else, you need to make sure you have their permission.
You will receive separate SMS or email confirmation with details of your individual appointment time and date.
Get your vaccine at home
If you can't get to the Fort Regent vaccination centre, we can arrange for a mobile unit to visit you. This won’t be as quick as attending the vaccine centre. Call 0800 735 5566 to book a home appointment.
Young people aged 16 and 17 years old
All young people in Jersey aged 16 to 17 are eligible for the Pfizer/Biontech COVID-19 vaccine.
Once young people reach 16, they are presumed in law to be competent to give consent for themselves. This includes for their own surgical, medical or dental treatment, and any associated procedures, such as investigations, anaesthesia or nursing care. This would include receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
Vaccine information for young people aged 16 and 17 years old
Third dose for severely immunocompromised people
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) advised that people over the age of 12 with severely weakened immune systems should have a third vaccine dose as part of their primary COVID-19 vaccination schedule.
JVCI advice and list of who can receive a third dose on gov.uk
People who need a third dose are those who had a severely weakened immune system around the time they had their first 2 doses. This includes those who had or have:
- blood cancers (such as leukaemia or lymphoma)
- lowered immunity due to treatment (such as steroid medication, biological therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy)
- lowered immunity due to inherited disorders of the immune system
- an organ or bone marrow transplant
- diseases that affect the immune system such as poorly controlled HIV
- other diseases or treatments as advised by your specialist
How to get your third dose
We are working with GPs and specialist teams to contact people who are severely immunosuppressed. The Vaccination Team will be in touch with you to arrange your third dose.
If you have not heard from the team but think you might be severely immunocompromised and eligible for a third dose after reading the list of conditions, you should contact your GP or specialist team who will be able to make a referral.
This offer is separate to any potential booster programme. The JCVI is still deliberating the potential benefits of booster vaccines for the rest of the population and is awaiting further evidence to inform this decision.
Children aged 12 to 15 who are at risk or live with someone who is immune supressed
We are aiming to offer vaccination to all children and young people who are:
- 12 to 15 year olds clinically at risk
- over 12 year olds who live with someone who is immune supressed
If your child is in one of the groups recommended for vaccination by the JCVI, you will need to contact the helpline and then the vaccination team will then contact you to arrange for your child’s vaccinations.
There are no current plans to vaccinate children and young people outside of the eligible groups. However, the JCVI is continually reviewing evidence on this matter and will advise if it decides that a change of approach is required.

Jersey residents in the UK including students
If you're a Jersey resident and currently in England and have an NHS number, you can use the national booking service to book a vaccination appointment.
To book a vaccination appointment in the UK, you'll need:
- date of birth
- GP record/NHS number
Book online on the NHS website or call 119.
Students will be able to have their first or second dose of the vaccine in the UK if they:
If you've had your first dose of the vaccine in the UK, you can have your second dose in Jersey 10 weeks after your first vaccine.
If you've had your first dose of the vaccine in Jersey and will be returning to the UK, you can have your second dose in the UK.
Types of vaccine
In the UK and Jersey, there are 3 types of COVID-19 vaccine that are currently being used:
- Pfizer BioNtech vaccine
- AstraZeneca (Oxford) vaccine
They all require two doses to provide the best protection and have been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials.
We have limited supplies of the vaccine and so you'll be offered the vaccine that is available. You'll be advised of the vaccine at your appointment.
If you feel unwell
If you're unwell, it's better to wait until you have recovered to have your vaccine, but you should have it as soon as possible. If you have COVID-19 you can have the vaccine 4 weeks following a positive test. You should not attend a vaccine appointment if you're:
- waiting for a COVID-19 test
- unsure if you're fit and well
