Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines

The risks of coronavirus remain high. To keep everyone safe, please stay cautious. Get the latest information about coronavirus.

Everyone aged 16 and over in Middlesbrough is now eligible to get their coronavirus vaccine. You can book your vaccine appointment right now, you do not need to wait for the NHS to contact you.

Walk-in vaccines - skip the queue!

To help get people vaccinated as quickly as possible, you may be able to get your jab without an appointment, at a vaccine clinic.

Need your first jab?

If you're over 16 and have not had your first jab yet, you can go to the walk-in vaccine clinics at North Ormesby Health Village or the Riverside Stadium.

Make sure you check the opening days and times before you go.

Need your second jab?

If you've already had your first jab, your vaccine card will say which one you had. Your second vaccine must be the same as your first, you cannot get two different ones. For example, if you had Pfizer for your first jab, your second jab must also be Pfizer, not AstraZeneca.

AstraZeneca

If you need your second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, you can go to North Ormesby Health Village. You must get your second dose at least 8 weeks after your first.

Make sure you check the opening days and times before you go.

Pfizer

If you need your second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, you can go to North Ormesby Health Village or the Riverside Stadium. You must get your second dose at least 8 weeks after your first.

Make sure you check the opening days and times before you go.

Book an appointment

You should book your vaccine appointment on the NHS website if you cannot attend a walk-in vaccine clinic on any of the available dates.

Common side effects

Like all medicines, the vaccines can cause side effects, but not everyone gets them.

Most side effects are mild and should not last longer than a week. These might include:

  • a sore arm from the injection
  • feeling tired
  • a headache
  • feeling achy
  • feeling or being sick

You may also get a high temperature or feel hot or shivery 1 or 2 days after your vaccination. You can take painkillers like paracetamol if you need to. If your symptoms get worse or you're worried, call 111.

In very rare cases, you may have more severe side effects. Find out more about side effects on the NHS website.

If you're worried about how safe the vaccines are, you can find out more about vaccine safety on the NHS website.

NHS App

After you've had both doses of the vaccine, you can use the NHS App to show your 'COVID Pass'. You might need this to get into certain venues in England, as well as if you're travelling abroad. You can download the NHS App from the Apple App Store or Google Play store. Find out more about the NHS App.
