COVID-19 Vaccine 

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective and gives you the best protection against coronavirus. 

The NHS plans to deliver the largest vaccination programme in our history. Approved vaccines have been rigorously tested and confirmed as safe and highly effective by the expert Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). 

Current available COVID-19 vaccines are:

Oxford University/AstraZeneca

Pfizer/BioNTech

In Sutton, the vaccine is available through Hospital Hubs and vaccination centres. The number of sites providing vaccinations will increase as more vaccines become available. 

Who can get the COVID-19 vaccine?

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccines to people most at risk from coronavirus. You will be called up by your GP when its your turn.

The vaccine is being offered in some hospitals and local vaccination centres run by GPs. It’s being given to:

  • people aged 80 and over 

  • people who live or work in care homes

  • health care workers at high risk

You will also need to be registered with a GP surgery in England. You can register with a GP if you do not already have one.

The vaccine will be offered more widely, and at other locations, as soon as possible.
