The COVID-19 Vaccine
Following extensive trials, two safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines have been approved in the UK and the NHS is now working quickly to vaccinate those who are at most risk from Covid-19.
The first vaccinations are being offered to people in the priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), starting with people in care homes and those aged 80 and over. Groups of GP practices are working together to provide vaccines from local centres and will contact eligible patients when it is their turn – there is no need for individuals to contact practices or the NHS for an appointment.
