Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Vaccination

The COVID-19 vaccination is the largest vaccine programme in the history of the NHS.

The vaccines have been through the same regulatory approval process as all other medicines used in this country to make sure they meet strict safety standards and offer high levels of protection.

Research has shown the vaccines help:

  • reduce your risk of getting seriously ill or dying from COVID-19
  • reduce your risk of catching or spreading COVID-19
  • protect against COVID-19 variants

The vaccine is free of charge on the NHS.

Current eligibility is available at NHS: About COVID-19 vaccination.
