Norwich Vaccination Centres

Covid vaccinations are being carried out at 3 locations across Norwich; 

  1. Lionwood Medical Practice 30a Wellesley Avenue, Norwich, NR1 4NU 
  2. Bowthorpe Medical Practice Wendene, Norwich, NR5 9HA 
  3. Gurney Medical Practice 40 Fishergate, Norwich, NR3 1SE 

Car parking is available onsite for patients at Lionwood and Bowthorpe.  There is only disabled parking (3 spaces) available Gurney, therefore you would need to park in the multi-story car park at Anglia Square if travelling in by car. 

We will contact you when you are able to book your appointment and advise you of the venue to need to attend for your appointment. 

If you wish to cancel your appointment for any reason, please ensure you do this at least 24 hours in advance so the appointment can be offered to someone else and the vaccine is not wasted.
