COVID-19 vaccine roll-out
The Council is working with our NHS partners in the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme.
This is the largest vaccination programme the country has ever seen.
It is a huge challenge and we are working with our NHS partners to make sure it is delivered as quickly as possible to those who need it most.
When you are invited for a vaccine, please act on your invite and make sure you attend appointments.
Message from our NHS
People aged 45 and over are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. These vaccinations are free of charge.

Frontline health and social care workers
Frontline health and social care staff who provide direct care closely and regularly to those who are clinically vulnerable to COVID-19 are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
If you are a provider of health or social care and have not already been contacted to receive vaccinations for your staff, please email your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vaccine fraud alert
We are aware that some people are receiving suspicious calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination.
To protect yourself and your family members from fraud and criminals, remember the following points:
- The vaccine is only available on the NHS for free to people in priority groups, and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn. Anyone offering a paid-for vaccine is committing a crime.
- The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text to confirm you want the vaccine, and never ask for payment or for your bank details.
- At the moment we are also not making house calls to deliver or discuss the vaccine. Anyone offering this now is committing a crime.
If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. Report any scams to Citizens Advice Consumer Service:
Where the victim is vulnerable, and particularly if you are worried that someone has or might come to your house, report it to the Police online or by calling 101.
