The first phase of the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme has started. The vast majority of vaccinations given in this initial phase will be prioritised for those over 80 and care home workers and residents. From next week the vaccination will start to be delivered from primary care, with other services to follow over the coming weeks. When it is the right time, you will receive an invitation to come forward for your vaccination. For most people this will be a letter, either from the practice or the national NHS. This letter will include all the information you will need to book appointments, including your NHS number.
Please help us and do not contact the practice or other NHS services to get an appointment for a Covid vaccination until you get this letter. Please also continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives.
Information on the vaccine is available on www.nhs.uk
