The national vaccination programme is being rolled out across England led by the NHS.
In Woking and the rest of Surrey Heartlands, groups of GP practices and the wider NHS are working together to run vaccination services supported by county, district and borough councils and community partners.
Who can get the COVID-19 vaccine?
The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from Coronavirus.
In England, the vaccine is being offered in some hospitals and pharmacies, at hundreds of local vaccination centres run by GPs and at larger vaccination centres.
It's being given to:
- people aged 70 and over
- people who live or work in care homes
- health and social care workers at high risk
You will also need to be registered with a GP surgery in England.
The vaccine will be offered more widely as soon as it is possible to do so.
When will I get the COVID-19 vaccine?
Wait to be contacted. The NHS will let you know when it's your turn to have the vaccine.
When the NHS do contact you, please attend your booked appointment.
Vaccination enquiry service
Surrey Heartlands has launched a dedicated COVID-19 vaccination enquiry service to help answer questions about the vaccines and the vaccination programme.
Please note this is not a vaccination booking service but we hope it will help our partners to signpost members of the public or other colleagues when answering questions.
Before calling this service, please check Surrey Heartland's frequently asked questions webpage.
Phone: 0300 5612 500 (open 9am to 4pm, Monday – Friday)
A fake NHS text has been circulating, telling people they’re eligible to apply for the COVID-19 vaccine. The URL leads to a fake NHS website that asks for your personal details, including your bank/card details in order to ‘check your identity’.
The COVID-19 vaccines can only be supplied and administered by the NHS. Private medical practitioners do not have access to the vaccines and, therefore, cannot promote nor sell private vaccinations.
