COVID-19 vaccines now being offered to those 65 years and over
From today (Monday 15 February 2021), people aged 65 to 69, and those who are clinically vulnerable will begin receiving invitations for COVID-19 vaccinations from the NHS.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) defines clinically vulnerable people as those with:
chronic respiratory disease, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis and severe asthma
chronic heart disease (and vascular disease)
chronic kidney disease
chronic liver disease
chronic neurological disease including epilepsy
severe and profound learning disability
solid organ, bone marrow and stem cell transplant recipients
people with specific cancers
immunosuppression due to disease or treatment
asplenia and splenic dysfunction
severe mental illness
This priority group will be able to book an appointment for their vaccination online once they receive their letter from the NHS. Those aged 70 and over who have yet to receive their invitation letter can also continue to use the online national booking service (external link) to make an appointment. Anyone unable to book online can call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week.
