The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus (COVID-19). This is a gradual roll-out and will take several months to complete.
The vaccine is the best way to reduce the risk of catching COVID-19 and we are encouraging everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated. Across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent the vaccine is being offered in a range of vaccination sites, including GP-led sites, larger vaccination sites as well as some hospitals and pharmacies. More sites are expected to launch over the coming weeks and we will keep this website updated.
We will invite you to book an appointment when the time is right for you to have your vaccine. Please do not contact the NHS to seek an appointment as this adds additional pressure onto a busy NHS.
The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). Read the latest JCVI advice on priority groups for the COVID-19 vaccination on GOV.UK
We are currently vaccinating:
- people who live or work in care homes who have not yet had their vaccine
- health and social care workers who have not yet had their vaccine
- people aged 40 and over who have not yet had their vaccine
- people who are clinically extremely vulnerable. (16+)
- people aged 38 and over
- people who are at moderate risk from coronavirus (clinically vulnerable)
- people who get Carer's Allowance – find out more about Carer's Allowance on GOV.UK
You will also need to be registered with a GP surgery in England. You can register with a GP if you do not have one.
If you are under the age of 18 and a healthcare worker, you are not eligible for the vaccine
The vaccine will be offered more widely as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience as we roll-out the largest vaccination programme in the history of the NHS.
