Covid vaccine

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is our best defence against the virus. The vaccine is highly effective against the virus causing symptoms and it is currently being rolled out across Birmingham and Solihull to priority groups.

The vaccine is being offered to all healthcare workers, care home residents, the elderly and the ‘clinically vulnerable’ first. The vaccine will then be offered to the wider population in order of priority.

You will be invited to attend for a vaccination. Please do not attempt to book a vaccination appointment or attend a vaccination centre, unless you have been contacted and advised to book.

If you have received a letter from the national booking centre inviting you to book your Covid-19 vaccination you can do this online or on the phone using the details on the first page of the letter.

Letters sent by the national booking team are different to letters your GP may also send. If you are trying to book into a mass vaccination centre, please do not contact your GP surgery, as they will be unable to book you into the mass centre. Please use the details in the letter to book your appointment directly, either online or by phone.
