Explains how to access a Covid-19 (coronavirus) vaccine, including if you may find it difficult to attend a vaccine appointment. Gives tips on how to prepare if you are worried about having your vaccination.
All adults in England and Wales (aged over 18) can now book an appointment for a Covid-19 vaccine.
You can visit the NHS Covid-19 vaccines page to book your appointment. Your GP may also contact you to offer you a vaccination appointment.
Some of us may find it difficult or feel unable to attend a vaccination appointment. This could be for many reasons, such as a physical health condition or disability. Or it may be due to a mental health problem, for example agoraphobia.
In some cases, the NHS may be able to visit your home to give you your vaccine. Or they may be able to provide support for you to visit a site where you can have your vaccine. You may hear this called making 'reasonable adjustments'.
