NHS staff will begin vaccinating people aged 65 to 69 and those who are clinically vulnerable against COVID from 15.02.2021 with over one million people already invited to book a jab.
Almost 1.2 million letters were due to land on doorsteps asking people to log on to the national booking service at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination with another 1.2 million due to arrive this week.
Anyone unable to book online can call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week.
Those who receive a letter can choose from more than 100 large scale vaccination centres or almost 200 pharmacy services.
In the next phase, GP led vaccination sites will focus initially on the clinically vulnerable from cohort 6 because of the relationship between general practice and those with long term conditions, and continuity of care.
Should somebody aged 65 to 69 want to wait to be called by their local GP vaccination service or who have already received the jab they do not need to respond to their invitation.
