COVID-19 vaccination

The NHS is offering everyone aged 5 and over the COVID-19 vaccine.

A booster dose is also available for everyone aged 16 and over, and some children aged 12 to 15.

People aged 75 and over, people who live in care homes for older people, and people aged 12 and over who have a weakened immune system, are being offered a booster.

If you've had a positive COVID-19 test, you need to wait before getting any dose of the vaccine. The NHS has published guidance explaining how long you will need to wait.

How to get the vaccine

If you are over 16 you can find out how to get a vaccination on the NHS website or you can visit a walk-in vaccination clinic. 

Appointments for children aged 5-16 are available at selected vaccination centres and pharmacies. They can be booked online on the NHS website.
