Vaccination in the Dover District


There will be a range of places to get COVID-19 vaccines from across Kent and Medway. People will be contacted when the vaccine is available for them. Please do not phone GP surgeries, the CCG, or other NHS services with general queries about when you will be able to get the vaccine.

For further details, please visit the Kent and Medway CCG Covid-19 vaccination webpage.

Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group

The Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Covid-19 vaccination webpage provides information about the progress of the rollout of the vaccination programme across Kent and Medway. This includes a list and map of the current vaccination sites, information on the priority list for getting a vaccine, as well as the number of vaccines that have been administered to date. This is a rolling programme and more vaccination services will be opening across Kent and Medway, including the Dover District, as further supplies of the vaccine become available. 

GP surgeries are working together in groups called Primary Care Networks (PCN) to provide the Covid-19 vaccine. 

Local Vaccination Sites 

The Covid-19 vaccination programme for GP practices in the Dover District started during the week commencing 11 January 2021. This is for GP practices covered by three Primary Care Networks - Total Health Excellence Dover PCN, Dover Town PCN, and the Deal and Sandwich PCN. 

This covers the following GP practices:

  • Aylesham Medical Practice
  • Balmoral Surgery, Walmer
  • Buckland Medical Practice, Dover
  • High Street Surgery, Dover
  • Lydden Surgery
  • Manor Road Surgery, Deal
  • Pencester Surgery, Dover
  • Peter Street Surgery, Dover
  • St James' Surgery, Dover
  • St Richard's Road Surgery, Deal
  • Sandwich Medical Practice
  • The Cedars Surgery, Walmer
  • White Cliffs Medical Centre, Dover

All vaccinations for the above GP practices will be administered at the Dover Health Centre, Maison Dieu Road, Dover, CT16 1RH.  

GP-led vaccination services operating from Minster Surgery (includes Ash residents) and Ramsgate have relocated to join forces with the large vaccination centre in the Saga Centre, at Eurokent Business Park.

The Aylesham Health Centre is a vaccination centre providing vaccinations for NHS and care home staff arranged in advance. 

Pharmacy and large vaccination centres

In addition, there are pharmacy run vaccination services and large vaccination services. 

GP-run vaccine services and housebound visits

The national booking service cannot make appointments for GP services or home visits. GPs and their teams are inviting people to local vaccination services and are prioritising going out to housebound patients who haven’t already been vaccinated.

If you have not yet had a first dose Covid-19 vaccine, contact your GP practice.  

Residents with learning disabilities prioritised

Given the evidence of Covid-19 inequalities increasing deaths amongst people with learning disabilities, the NHS in Kent and Medway has agreed (9 February) to prioritise vaccinating the 9,500 people on GP learning disability registers. 

Residents of care homes for people with learning disabilities are being vaccinated and those living independently or with family will be contacted via their GP service.

The Community Learning Disability Nursing Team is providing a service to vaccinate adults with learning disabilities who are not able to attend a GP vaccine site.

None of these locations offer a drop-in vaccination service. All vaccinations are arranged in advance through invitation based on the national priority groups. Please wait to be contacted for when you can get the vaccine.

For further details, please visit the Kent and Medway CCG Covid-19 vaccination webpage.

Vaccine Scam Alert

We are aware that some people are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination. In some cases, people are asked to press a number on their keypad or to send a text message to confirm they wish to receive the vaccine. Doing so is likely to result in a charge being applied to their phone bill. In other cases, callers are offering the vaccine for a fee or asking for bank details.

Please be alert to these scams.

The vaccine is only available from the NHS and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn. The NHS will:

  • NEVER ask you to press a button on your keypad to confirm you want a vaccine.
  • NEVER ask for payment for the vaccine or for your bank details.

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you believe you have been the victim of fraud or identity theft you should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. Where the victim is vulnerable, report it to Kent Police online or phone 101.
