Covid Vaccine is now available for 25 – 29-year-olds.

You can now get the COVID-19 vaccine if:

  • you’re aged 25 or over
  • you’ll turn 25 before 1 July 2021

You can book appointments at a larger vaccination centre or pharmacy now, or wait to be invited to go to a local NHS service.

The vaccine cannot give you COVID-19 infection, and 2 doses will reduce your chance of becoming seriously ill. We do not yet know how much it will reduce the chance of you catching and passing on the virus. So, it is important to continue to protect those around you.

Remember to protect yourself and your family, friends and colleagues you MUST still follow any national or local restrictions and:

  • practise social distancing
  • wear a face mask
  • wash your hands regularly
  • open windows to let fresh air in
  • follow the current guidance

After you have had the first dose you need to plan to attend your second appointment. You should have a record card and your next appointment should be between 3 and 12 weeks later.

Although the first dose will give you good protection, you need the second dose to get longer-lasting protection.

Keep your record card safe and make sure you keep your next appointment to get your second dose
