Who Can Get The Covid-19 Vaccine Update 08/03/2021

Posted by: siteadmin - Posted on:

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.

In England, the vaccine is being offered in some hospitals and pharmacies, at local centres run by GPs and at larger vaccination centres. More centres are opening all the time.

It’s being given to:
*people aged 56 and over
*people at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
*people who live or work in care homes
*health and social care workers
*people with a condition that puts them at higher risk (clinically vulnerable)
*people with a learning disability
*people who are a main carer for someone at high risk from coronavirus

The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
