What you need to know about 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 and hundreds of local vaccinations centres run by GPs. 

It's currently being given to:

  • people aged 80 and over 
  • some people aged 70 and over
  • some people who are clinically extremely vulnerable 
  • people who live or work in care homes
  • health and social care workers

The COVID-19 vaccine is given as an injection into your upper arm. It's given as 2 doses.

3.5 million people in the UK have now had their first COVID-19 vaccine. 

What you need to do:

You will need to be registered with a GP surgery in England. You can register with a GP if you do not have one. 

If you are already registered your GP will need up to date contact details for you to ensure they can contact you with an appointment. 

The NHS will let you know when it's your turn to have the vaccine.
