How to get your COVID-19 vaccination

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

If you are not eligible yet, wait to be contacted. The NHS will let you know when it's your turn to have the COVID-19 vaccine. It's important not to contact the NHS for a vaccination before then.

To find out who can currently get the vaccination, and where, please visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/who-can-get-the-vaccine/

If you have had your first jab, you will be contacted about getting your second. For more information visit: www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination

A guide for parents/carers

It can be confusing to know what to do when your baby or child is unwell during the coronavirus pandemic. Remember that the NHS is still providing safe care.

We've developed posters for families living in England, Scotland, Wales (in English and Welsh languages) and Northern Ireland about when and how to get medical help for your child, or for your young baby - or for yourself as a young person.
