The NHS will be starting to vaccinate the most at‐risk groups, including over‐80s and social care
workers, in the hospital hubs when we have the vaccines in place. They will be starting to call people
who fall into the priority groups over the coming weeks to book appointments.
Over the coming weeks they will be extending deliveries to local vaccination services, and hope
that later this month (December) the MHRA will allow batches to be split, meaning that vaccination teams can go
into care homes to vaccinate those who can’t go to other services.
You can really help the NHS deliver this effectively to those who need it most. Their asks are:
1. they will contact you when it’s the right time to come forward, so please don’t contact the
NHS to seek a vaccine before then;
2. please act on your invite when it comes, and make sure you attend your appointments when
you arrange them;
3. and of course, please continue to abide by all the social distancing, wearing of face masks
and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
