The NHS urge anyone over 50 years old, or who is clinically extremely vulnerable, to come forward for a COVID vaccination if they have not already been invited by the NHS. If you are not in one of these groups then you will not be able to have a vaccination currently. The NHS ask that you do not book an appointment, as you will be turned away.
Vaccinations are currently only available to those people aged 50 and over, who have been contacted directly by the NHS to book in. If and when your GP or local NHS service is able to offer a vaccination to you, you will be contacted directly by them to arrange an appointment for the vaccine. You can find out more about vaccinations at www.birminghamandsolihullcovidvaccine.nhs.uk
