Covid 19 vaccine information

Back to the Coronavirus hub homepage 

So far people from Cohorts 1-4 have had their first dose vaccinations, these are:

  • residents in care homes for older adults and their carers
  • those over 80 years old
  • front-line health and social care workers

The next step is going to be vaccinating people in Cohort 5 – those aged 65 and over and Cohort 6 – all individuals aged 16 to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and death.

There is lots of information and resources below, to help you prepare, if you or someone you care for are in one of these groups.
