Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus.

Three COVID-19 vaccines – Pfizer/BioNTech, Oxford AstraZeneca and Moderna – have now been approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for use in the UK.

The approval of vaccines is a significant milestone in our response to COVID-19. It follows months of rigorous clinical trials and a thorough analysis of data by experts at the MHRA who have concluded that the vaccines meet strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness.

Wait to be contacted

The NHS will contact you when it’s your turn to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. It’s important not to contact your GP surgery for a vaccination before then.

Staff are working tirelessly to ensure the necessary measures are in place for those most at risk to get their vaccine first. We ask for your patience and understanding – we are doing everything we can to stick to our timelines, however we may need to cancel or amend appointments depending on delivery of the vaccine.
