Patients who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination will be invited directly to book an appointment. It is really important that you make arrangements to have the vaccine once invited.
If you have not received a letter, phone call or text message to book a vaccination, please do not worry, we will notify everyone in priority order when the vaccination becomes available. We would be grateful if you do not telephone our hospitals, your GP practice or other NHS hospital to request a vaccination; please wait to be invited.
