This is the main link to the vaccine roll-out in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire from the Nottm & Notts Clinical Commissioning Group, which includes the phone numbers and the links to the online booking systems for each of the main groups to be vaccinated. The Gamston vaccination centre has reported that, "if you call the NHS number 119, you will be directed to Derby. This is because Nottinghamshire has its own booking system and number. You need to call 0115 883 4640. However please book online if you can, as the number gets very busy. "
Coronavirus Information Service on WhatsApp - Central Government has launched its Coronavirus Information Service on WhatsApp, as announced on Twitter. The free service is an automated ‘chatbot’ that will provide information on coronavirus prevention and symptoms, the latest number of cases in the UK, advice on staying at home, travel advice and myth busting. It aims to further reduce the burden on NHS services, including 111, combat the spread of the virus and ensure people stay at home and save lives.
