COVID-19 Vaccination

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus.

Who can get the COVID-19 vaccine

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.

The vaccine is being offered in some hospitals, some pharmacies and hundreds of local vaccination services run by GPs.

It's being given to:

  • Those 80 years old and over
  • people who live or work in care homes
  • health and social care workers at high risk

The vaccine will be offered more widely, and at other locations, as soon as possible.

The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

If you are a health and social care worker and you haven’t been invited for your covid vaccination yet, please read the advice here
