Extra Covid-19 Vaccination Service

All unvaccinated adults in Reading can now get a first dose vaccine.

The vaccination centre was initially open for people aged 18 and over living in the areas of Reading undergoing ‘surge testing’ who had not had any doses of a vaccine. The service is now expanding to cover all adults living, working or studying in Reading.

Checklist for those hoping to get a vaccine at Reading Borough Council Civic Offices as part of the extra vaccination programme:

  • You must be 18 or over
  • You should live, work or study in Reading
  • You must not have had ANY doses or a vaccine (to book a second dose, call 119).
  • Don’t come to the centre if you have Covid-19 symptoms or have had a positive test in 28 days
  • Check Reading Borough Council’s Facebook and Twitter feeds for updates

We now know that people who have not received a vaccine are more likely to become ill or be hospitalised as a result of catching the Delta variant.

We want to make sure people in the most affected areas can get a vaccine if they have not had one yet.
