Please do not contact your GP surgery about the COVID-19 vaccine – when you are required to attend for your vaccination you will be contacted.
The rollout of the vaccines to people is being done on the basis of clinical need, so you will have yours when the time is right.
Initially, it is being given to:
some people aged 80 and over who already have a hospital appointment in the next few weeks
people who live or work in care homes
health and social care workers at high risk
Other groups will have the vaccine after this.
