Those who have been asked to shield can book their Covid-19 vaccination at a regional site or wait until they are invited by their local GP-led vaccination centre.
Starting from last week, people aged 18 and over who are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (those who have been asked to shield) may receive a letter from the national Covid-19 vaccination booking service.
Clinically extremely vulnerable individuals are in the 1-4 priority groups currently receiving their vaccination.
If you are in this group – and you haven’t already had the Covid-19 vaccine – you can use the details in the letter to book in at a regional vaccination centre or nominated community pharmacy.
However, you don’t have to take up this option if you don’t want to – you’ll still be invited by your local GP-led vaccination centre soon. You don’t need to contact your GP practice or any other NHS organisation to request the vaccine – we’ll be in touch when it’s your turn.
In the meantime, you can find a list of local Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about the Covid-19 vaccination programme here.
