Who can get the COVID-19 vaccine

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.

In England, the vaccine is being offered in some hospitals and pharmacies, at local centres run by GPs and at larger vaccination centres. More centres are opening all the time.

It's being given to people who are:

  • aged 45 and over
  • at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
  • living or working in care homes
  • health and social care workers
  • with a condition that puts them at higher risk (clinically vulnerable)
  • with a learning disability
  • a main carer for someone at high risk from coronavirus

The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
