When will the 18 to 29 age group receive the Covid vaccine?

In England, those aged 18 and over in England are now being invited to book their first Covid-19 jab

The Covid-19 vaccine is being offered in some hospitals and pharmacies, at local centres run by GPs and at larger vaccination centres.

You can get your jab if:

- you’re aged 18 or over

- you’re at high risk from COVID-19 (clinically extremely vulnerable)

- you have a condition that puts you at higher risk (clinically vulnerable)

- you have a learning disability

- you're a frontline health or social care worker

- you get a Carer's Allowance, get support following an assessment by your local authority or your GP record shows you're a carer

You can book appointments at a larger vaccination centre or a pharmacy that provides Covid vaccinations. You do not need to wait to be contacted by the NHS.

If you cannot book online, you can call 119 free of charge. You can also speak to a translator if you need to.

In Scotland, the jab is currently being offered to people in their late 20s and above, as well as unpaid carers over the age of 16.

In Glasgow all over-18s are being offered the vaccine, due to higher case numbers.

If you think you should have received a letter by now with details of either your first or second dose, call the national Covid-19 vaccination helpline on 0800 030 8013. You can also report your missing appointment online.

In Wales, those aged 18-29 are now being invited to receive a Covid job, as well as remaining adults aged 40-49 and 30-39, and anyone who, for whatever reason, was missed in priority groups 1-9.

When it is your turn to receive the vaccine, you will be contacted directly by the NHS. You may be contacted by either telephone or letter.

In Northern Ireland, Covid vaccinations have now been made available to everyone over the age of 18.

Appointments are available to book online on the Health and Social Care website and by telephone on 0300 200 7813.
