COVID-19 vaccination walk-in clinics
Some COVID-19 vaccination centres in Wirral are running walk-in clinics to make it easier and more convenient than ever for people to access the COVID-19 vaccine.
People who already have an appointment at one of the clinics offering walk-in vaccines should still attend at their timed slot and they will receive their vaccine as planned.

Booster doses of the coronavirus vaccine
There are 3 types of booster for the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine:
- A booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is available for everyone aged 16 and over, and some children aged 12 to 15, who have had a 2nd dose of the vaccine at least 3 months ago.
- A booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is available for anyone who had a severely weakened immune system when they had their first 2 doses and who had an additional primary dose (3rd dose) of the vaccine at least 3 months ago.
- An autumn booster of the COVID-19 vaccine is available to people aged 75 and over, people who live in a care home for older people, or people aged 12 and over who have a weakened immune system.
If you have not had a booster dose yet, you're still eligible and can book anytime.
- There must be a minimum 8 weeks between first and second dose
- There must be a minimum of 8 weeks between the second dose and 3rd primary dose
- There must be a minimum of at least 3 months between the second dose and booster
- Vaccines will be given on a first come, first served basis
- The clinic might end early if all available vaccines have been administered
- You may be required to queue
- You don’t need to take anything with you but you will be asked to confirm your name; date of birth and address. If you know your NHS number, that’s a bonus – to find this, use the Find My NHS Number tool
