Following extensive trials,  the Pfizer/BioNTech, Oxford/AstraZeneca and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are now available. All vaccines have been shown to be safe and offer high levels of protection, and have been given regulatory approval by the MHRA. 

Vaccinations are being delivered according to priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). The vaccinations may not take place at your GP practice, but rather a local vaccination service (led by GPs, practice nurses and community pharmacists) who are responsible for delivering the vaccine to people in your community.

When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination, you will receive an invitation to come forward. This may be via the phone, or through a letter either from your GP or the national booking system.

We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but we are asking people not to contact us to get an appointment as you will not be able to get one until you are contacted.
