Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination

NHS COVID-19 vaccinations have saved countless lives, kept tens of thousands of people out of hospital, and helped us to live with the virus without fear or restrictions.

Changes from 30 June 2023

The offer of spring vaccinations for those at highest risk of severe illness from COVID-19 (including people aged 75 and above or with a weakened immune system, and residents of care homes for older adults) ended on 30 June.

The offer of two COVID-19 vaccinations (1st and 2nd dose) for everyone aged 5 or above (by 31 August 2022) also ended on 30 June.

You can no longer book a COVID-19 vaccination online. This service will reopen later in the year.

The NHS will let you know during autumn if your NHS record suggests you may be eligible for a vaccination ahead of winter.


Who can get a COVID-19 vaccine?  

Children under 5 in a clinical risk group

Only children aged 6 months to 4 years old who are at increased risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19 can currently get a COVID-19 vaccine. Local NHS services will invite eligible children for their vaccinations and arrange their appointments.

If your child is eligible because they are at increased risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19, please wait to be contacted.

People with a severely weakened immune system

If you develop a new health condition or start treatment that severely weakens your immune system, your specialist may advise you that you need an additional vaccine before the autumn. They will make a referral and advise on the best timing for vaccination around your planned treatment.

Speak to your specialist for more information.
