- Health and social care workers.

Vaccine latest – 17 March 2021
More than 64,000 local people in South Tyneside (around half the adult population) have now had at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, with many in the most vulnerable groups now receiving invitations for their second dose. We are on track to reach everyone in the first nine priority groups with first doses by mid-April.
If you’re in one of the first 8 vaccine priority groups and you have not had yours yet, please contact your GP and they can book you into a local vaccine centre.
Local people aged 50-54 will receive invitations from local vaccine centres over the next two weeks – if they receive an invitation to a large vaccine centre like the Nightingale or Centre for Life in the meantime, it is OK to wait to get a vaccine locally if that is more practical for you. We’re asking people in the age 50-54 group not to call your practice to ask about your jab – you’ll be invited in the next two weeks.
