The COVID-19 vaccine has been proven to be safe and effective at reducing the chance of you suffering from coronavirus.
The NHS is working hard to vaccinate the most vulnerable as quickly as possible. This will take time but the NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to the following people most at risk from coronavirus:
- people aged 60 and over
- people who are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
- people who are at moderate risk from coronavirus (clinically vulnerable)
- people who live or work in care homes
- health and social care workers
- people who are eligible for Carer’s Allowance – find out more about Carer’s Allowance on GOV.UK
If you are aged 60 or over or are clinically extremely vulnerable, an eligible frontline health worker or an eligible frontline social worker or you are eligible for Carer’s Allowance, you can now book your COVID-19 vaccination appointment without needing an invitation letter by visiting the NHS vaccination website or calling NHS 119, free of charge.
Please book and attend your appointment. You can book your appointment at a vaccination centre or a community pharmacy. The COVID-19 vaccination sites are run by NHS professionals and have extra measures in place to keep you safe during your visit. If you would prefer to receive the vaccine at a GP surgery, please wait to be contacted.
If you are at moderate risk from coronavirus (clinically vulnerable) the NHS will let you know when it's your turn to have the COVID-19 vaccination. Please attend your appointment when you are invited.
The sooner we are all vaccinated, the sooner we can get back to normal.
We know many of you will have questions about the vaccine and are concerned about the safety of the vaccinations.
