How will I know when I’m eligible to have the vaccine?
When it’s your turn to have the vaccine, the NHS will be in touch via letter, phone call or text
message so please make sure you’re registered with a GP. You can also check
if you’re eligible at nhs.uk/coronavirusvaccine
How can I book an appointment to have the vaccine?
When you’re eligible, you can book an appointment at a vaccination centre yourself at nhs.uk/coronavirusvaccine or by calling 119 for free. If you would prefer to have the
vaccine at a local NHS service like a GP surgery, please wait for your local NHS team to get in touch with you.
How can I book an appointment if I'm not registered with a GP?
If you’re not registered with a GP or don’t know your NHS number, please call 119 for free to book your appointment. While you don't have to be registered with a GP to get vaccinated, we recommend that you do. You do not need proof of identification, address or immigration status to register. Find out more on the NHS website.
Where can I go for a vaccine?
When you’re invited to have the vaccine, you can choose where you go to have it. Your options will be explained at the point of booking and will include going to a COVID-19 vaccination centre or a local NHS service like a GP surgery.
Wherever you choose to go, please be reassured that it will be a COVID-safe environment, which means extra precautions are in place to keep you safe - like extra hand-washing, extra cleaning and social distancing in waiting areas.
