Book your Covid-19 vaccine

Under new advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) those in their 30s will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine rather than AstraZeneca.

Pregnant women who are eligible are also being directed to vaccination centres offering Pfizer and Moderna in their local area in line with JCVI guidance. They can also speak to their GP practice or maternity service if they have any questions about the coronavirus vaccine or can talk to a healthcare professional at their appointment.
