COVID-19 vaccine: what you need to know

Take a look about what you need to know about the COVID-19 vaccination programme including how you will know when it's your turn, where to go, and why it's important.

We all have an important part to play to help the NHS deliver their vaccine delivery plan:

  • When you are contacted, please book and attend your appointment(s);
  • Turn up to your appointment on time, do not arrive early or late as the vaccination centres cannot accommodate you.

It is essential that everyone continues to follow COVID-19 restrictions whether they have had the vaccine or not. To follow social distancing guidance, wear a face covering and remember hands, face, space and fresh air.

For the latest information about the vaccine, please visit the NHS website and for the latest Government guidance go to
