Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination

COVID-19 vaccination is an important part of protecting yourself if you're at increased risk from severe COVID-19.

COVID-19 vaccines for people with a severely weakened immune system  

COVID-19 vaccines are normally given seasonally, but some people with a severely weakened immune system may need additional protection at other times. This may be because of a health condition or medical treatment.

Your specialist or GP will assess if you or your child (aged 6 months or over) need a COVID-19 vaccine. They will make a referral and advise on the best timing for vaccination around your planned treatment.

Speak to your specialist or GP for advice.

Seasonal COVID-19 vaccines   

Some people at increased risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19 may be able to get a seasonal COVID-19 vaccine later in 2024.
The NHS will contact you if your NHS record suggests you may be eligible for a seasonal COVID-19 vaccine.
When available, there will be different ways to get a seasonal COVID-19 vaccine:

  • booking online
  • going to a walk in COVID-19 vaccination site
  • through a local NHS service, such as a GP surgery
  • through your care home
