Millions of people in the UK have received their COVID-19 vaccination. The vaccine is safe and effective, and provides the best protection from COVID-19.

The NHS is offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people in order of those most at risk from coronavirus. The vaccine is being offered in some hospitals and pharmacies, at local vaccination centres run by GPs and at larger vaccination centres.

It’s being given to anyone aged 18 and over.

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

NHS staff are doing an incredible job to deliver the vaccine while at the same time continuing to be there for everyone who needs care.

Here’s how we can help them:

  • If you’ve booked an appointment, please attend at the time you’re asked to.
  • If you attend a walk-in clinic, please follow the guidance at that location.
  • Wherever you receive your vaccination, please continue to follow all the guidance in place to control the virus and save lives, even if you’ve already had your vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine is free of charge on the NHS and they’ll never ask for your bank account or card details.
