The NHS will contact those who have been identified as a priority to be offered the vaccine first.  Under a phased roll-out, people aged 80 and over as well as care home workers will be amongst the first to receive the vaccine, along with NHS workers who are at higher risk from COVID-19.

You should not contact your local hospital, GP surgery or other NHS services, you will be contacted when it's your turn.

Independent report from Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation: advice on priority groups for COVID-19 vaccination, 30 December 2020 - Updated 6 January 2021

Vaccine priority groups: advice on 30 December 2020 

JCVI advises that the first priorities for the COVID-19 vaccination programme should be the prevention of mortality and the maintenance of the health and social care systems. As the risk of mortality from COVID-19 increases with age, prioritisation is primarily based on age. The order of priority for each group in the population corresponds with data on the number of individuals who would need to be vaccinated to prevent one death, estimated from UK data obtained from March to June 2020:

  1. residents in a care home for older adults and their carers - invited
  2. all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers - invited
  3. all those 75 years of age and over - invited
  4. all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals - invited
  5. all those 65 years of age and over - invited
  6. all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality - invited
  7. all those 60 years of age and over - invited
  8. all those 55 years of age and over - invited
  9. all those 50 years of age and over - invited

It is estimated that taken together, these groups represent around 99% of preventable mortality from COVID-19.
