COVID-19 vaccination roll-out
The rollout of the vaccine involves a wide range of organisations working together. The NHS locally, regionally and nationally is leading the work, but with significant support from the county councils, district councils, the military, police and many more.
If you or your relatives are attending appointments for your COVID vaccine it is really important that you arrive at the time of your appointment and not early, where possible. This will help to support safe social distancing and reduce the likelihood of yourself and others having to queue.
Who can get the COVID-19 vaccine?
The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus. In England, the vaccine is being offered in some hospitals and pharmacies, at hundreds of local vaccination centres run by GPs and at larger vaccination centres. More centres are opening all the time.
It's being given to:
- people aged 65 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
You also need to be registered with a GP surgery in England. You can register with a GP if you do not have one.
The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
