You will probably be very keen to get your COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible and will want to know when and where you can get your jab.

We have been making very good progress in the short period of time since the vaccination became available. However, we all need to recognise this is the largest vaccination programme ever undertaken by the NHS and it will take time to get to everyone.

If you are concerned about how you will travel to get your vaccine during lockdown, it should be noted that, under the national guidance, it is permissible to receive a lift in terms of transport for medical appointments.
