The COVID-19 vaccine

About the 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 vaccination centres run by GPs.

It’s 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 care workers at high risk

The NHS will let you know when it’s your turn to have the vaccine. It’s important not to contact the NHS for a vaccination before then.

Stakeholder & Influencer Toolkit

The latest Stakeholder & Influencer Toolkit has been released by the Cabinet Office, containing lots of great resources to help you to talk about the Government’s roadmap for easing restrictions, and the latest information about the vaccines.
