The COVID-19 vaccines will become available as they are approved for use and as each batch is manufactured. Every dose is needed to protect those most at risk from coronavirus, following the guidelines of the JCVI. Vaccinating the priority groups first will save the most lives and provide the quickest and safest route out of the pandemic.

The NHS will let you know when it is your turn to have the vaccine. Please be patient. It is important not to contact the NHS to ask for a vaccination before then.
Some people who are housebound or live in a care home and can’t get to a local vaccination centre may have to wait for a supply of the right type of vaccine. This is because only certain vaccines can be transported to people’s homes.
