You will probably be very keen to get your COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible. Find out more about when you’re likely to be invited, how you will book your appointment and where you can get your jab.

When will I get my jab?

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

  • People aged 65 and over are being asked to book their jab now online through the national booking service or by calling 119 free of charge. Alternatively, you can wait for a local GP-led service to contact you to arrange your vaccination.
  • People aged 16-65 who have underlying health conditions such as severe asthma, diabetes or lung disease, will be contacted to have their jab by a local GP-led vaccination service.
  • If you are considered housebound, you will have your vaccination at home. A GP-led service will contact you to arrange this.
  • If you are 70 or over, or clinically extremely vulnerable and haven’t been vaccinated yet, please book online through the national booking service or by phone on 119, or contact your GP-led service.

If you are not in the groups described above, you will be contacted at a later date once you become eligible.

Where will I get my jab?

Where you get your vaccination will depend on whether you book through your GP practice or through the national booking service.
