We are making great progress with the vaccination roll out in North Tyneside. Already we have administered 132,460 first does to (74.1% of the eligible population) and 83,793 second doses (46.8% of the eligible population) (as at 1 June 2021).

We now have sixteen pharmacy-led vaccination sites are now administering vaccines across North Tyneside, with more opening all the time.

Three of these pharmacy-led sites are offering walk-in vaccination services for people who live or work in North Tyneside where no appointment is necessary. These are available seven days a week between 11am and 1pm and also between 5pm and 7pm.

  • Village Hotel, Silverlink, NE27 0BY
  • Collingwood Centre, North Shields, NE29 9QR
  • The Cedarwood Trust, North Shields, NE29 7QT

All of these sites operate independently from general practice – your GP surgery will NOT be able to book appointments for you at these sites. This can only be done online though the National Booking System or by calling 119.

There is a number of other community pharmacy sites across the North East offering vaccines plus a number of larger vaccination centres in Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham, Hexham, Darlington and Middlesbrough. All vaccine appointments across these systems are subject to national vaccine supply.

These are for first vaccinations only for anyone aged over 25 and you will be offered a vaccine that is appropriate for your age group.
