The NHS is rolling out COVID-19 vaccinations starting with those most at risk from coronavirus. This is in line with the guidelines on priority groups.
The NHS has set up a range of vaccination sites offering the COVID-19 vaccinations. You will be contacted directly by the NHS, if you are eligible and they will invite you for an appointment by letter, text or email. You need to be registered with a GP surgery in England. You can register with a GP if you do not have one.
Due to the way the vaccinations have been developed and tested and the level of risk of severe COVID-19 illness in children, most children and young people under the age of 18 will not be eligible to have the vaccination. In specific circumstances where there is very high risk, your health professionals may discuss with you offering your child the COVID-19 vaccination.
