Who can get the COVID-19 vaccine?
The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people aged 16 or over. The Covid Vaccine is a new, innovative vaccine that has been developed to protect against coronavirus (COVID-19) infection. It’s being offered in GP surgeries and larger vaccination centres across England; more are opening all the time. You can use the NHS service to book your appointment or manage your appointments if you have already booked through a GP or local NHS service.
You do not need to wait to be contacted by the NHS to get your vaccine; you can book your appointment for your first dose anytime. However, you should have your 2nd dose 8-12 weeks after the 1st one. At your appointment, you will be offered one of the following vaccinations:
– Pfizer/ BioNTech
– Oxford/ AstraZeneca
You will not be able to choose which vaccine you get. However, when you book you will only be offered appointments for the vaccines that are suitable for you. For example:
– If you are under 40 or pregnant, you will usually be offered Pfizer or Moderna.
– If you are under 18, you will only be offered the Pfizer vaccine.
