You will be asked for your NHS number to access your vaccine booking.
Failing this, you will be asked for other personal details to find your booking, such as your name and date of birth.
From here, you can cancel your vaccine appointment and book a new one.
People will need to change their vaccine appointments if they have to self-isolate after testing positive for Covid-19 or being a contact of someone who tests positive.
