COVID-19 vaccines delivery update
The Prime Minister has pledged that by 31 July, the first dose of COVID-19 vaccinations should have been offered to every adult in the UK. The aim is to also offer the vaccine to those aged 50 and over, and individuals with underlying health conditions by 15 April.
As of 22 February, over 17.5 million people in the UK have been vaccinated, with the NHS currently working through the 5th priority group as identified by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), which are people aged 65 to 69, and those who are clinically vulnerable.
Everyone in the first four priority groups should have been offered their first dose already. These initial priority groups were:
- all residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
- all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
- all those 75 years of age and over
- all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
Those who are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine but haven’t yet been invited by the NHS to take it, can book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment by visiting www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination (external link) or calling 119 for free.
