Once someone is eligible for their Covid vaccine, they are being invited to book their appointment via the NHS website. However, to book the appointment people are asked for their NHS number, which many of us will not know off by heart.

How can you find your NHS number?

The online NHS Covid vaccine booking service requests people enter their NHS number.

However, if you don’t know your NHS number don’t worry, as it is still possible to book a Covid vaccine appointment without this.

The booking service will ask you some other questions if you do not know your NHS number in order to book the vaccine appointment.

It is possible to find your NHS number on the NHS website HERE.

The service can help you retrieve your personal NHS number and anyone living in England can use it.

The service will ask for some personal details such as name, date of birth and postcode.

Then in a text, email or letter, the NHS will then send you your NHS number.

Alternatively, you may already have a letter somewhere which has your NHS number on it.

Official correspondence from the NHS, such as referral and appointment letters, should feature a person’s individual NHS number.

Any online services with your GP practice may also include details of your NHS number.

How can you book a Covid vaccine appointment?

The NHS vaccine booking website is now accepting bookings from people aged 30 or over.

On Tuesday, Mr Hancock said: “Our vaccination programme is moving at such a phenomenal pace, and I am delighted that less than six months after Margaret Keenan received the first authorised jab in the world, we are now able to open the offer to everyone in their thirties and over.”

People who will turn 30 before July 1, 2021 are also eligible to book an appointment.

Other eligible people include those considered clinically vulnerable or clinically extremely vulnerable.

People with learning disabilities, carers and frontline health and social care workers are also eligible for vaccination.

When using the online service to book Covid vaccinations, both appointments need to be booked at the same time.

The second vaccine is given eight to 12 weeks after the first dose is administered.

It is also possible to book Covid vaccine appointments through GP practices.
