The NHS is undertaking the largest vaccination programme in its history. Covid-19 vaccinations are currently being offered starting with people most at risk from coronavirus. The vaccine is now being offered to lower-risk priority groups, including all adults aged 55 and over, people with learning disabilities, all frontline health and social care workers and carers.
The coronavirus vaccine is safe and effective and gives you the best protection against coronavirus.
- If you are aged 55 and over, an eligible frontline health or social care worker, a main carer for someone at high risk from COVID-19*, have a learning disability**, are clinically extremely vulnerable (high risk) or clinically vulnerable (moderate risk) – you can book your vaccine online at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or call 119 without needing an invitation.
- See the full list of priority groups here and guidance on frontline health or social care workers and the high or moderate risk categories here.
- *Carers can book online if you get a Carer’s Allowance or you are listed as a carer in your GP records. Carers can get advice from their local carers association such as Carers Hub in Lambeth
- **Lambeth GP practices are keen to finish vaccinating patients with learning disabilities in a familiar local setting, so if you are in this group you can contact your GP directly and discuss any additional support that might be needed
- NOTE: The online booking system offers appointments at a larger vaccination centre or a pharmacy that provides COVID-19 vaccinations. If you are housebound you will be contacted by your GP to be vaccinated at home. If you are not housebound, you can wait to be contacted by your GP or until more locations closer to where you live become available.
Please continue to follow Government guidance, wear a mask, wash hands and keep a safe distance.
