COVID vaccine approval
Three coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines have been developed and approved for use in the UK. (Pfizer/BioNTech, AstraZeneca/Oxford and Moderna)
The vaccines have met strict standards of safety, quality and effectiveness set out by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
The UK will now have enough vaccine availability to vaccinate the entire adult population and hopefully see an end to the coronavirus pandemic.
The NHS will start giving the coronavirus vaccine as soon as it is available.
You will be contacted when it's your turn. Please do not contact the NHS to find out when yours is happening.
At first, the vaccine will be offered to people who are most at risk from coronavirus, before being offered more widely.
Please note- There are various scams circulating. You will never be asked for your bank details to access the vaccine. The vaccine will be provided free of charge.Find out more
