The COVID-19 vaccine has been proven to be safe and effective at protecting people against coronavirus.
The NHS is working hard to vaccinate as many people as possible. This will take time but the NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to the following people:
- people aged 38 and over, or anyone who turns 38 before 1 July 2021
- 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 with a learning disability
- people who are the main carer for someone at high risk from coronavirus
If you belong to one of these groups 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.
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.
