COVID-19 Vaccination Information - Please wait to be contacted by the NHS

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus. The vaccine is being offered in some hospitals and, from this week, hundreds of local vaccination centres run by GPs.

Please note that Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals are not yet offering the vaccine and although we anticipate that we will do in the near future, we ask that you refrain from calling our hospitals to book your vaccination and help us to keep our phone lines free for those who need to speak to us.

The NHS will let you know when it is your turn to have the vaccine so there is no need for you to do anything.

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

It's being given to:

  • some people aged 80 and over who already have a hospital appointment in the next few weeks
  • people who live or work in care homes
  • health care/ community workers at high risk

Read the latest JCVI advice on priority groups for the COVID-19 vaccination on GOV.UK.

Further information about the vaccine can be found on the NHS website.
