If you're 70 or over and haven't yet had your first COVID-19 vaccination, contact the NHS to arrange it. If you can't book online, call 119 (7am-11pm, every day).
If a convenient slot is not available, contact your GP. GPs have been asked to contact their clinically extremely vulnerable patients to ensure they've been offered the vaccine.
If you're not in these groups, please don't contact the NHS. They will tell you when it’s your turn to get the vaccine and how to book. The government sets the order that people are offered the vaccine.
Vaccination centres in Hertfordshire are working to vaccinate the top 6 priority groups at the moment.
You'll need your NHS number to have the vaccine. The vaccine is free and only offered by the NHS – they will never ask you for bank details.

Frontline social care workers and care providers
Frontline social care workers
We're coordinating the vaccine for frontline social care workers, including personal assistants who are paid to support people with care needs.
Some care provider organisations will be contacted through Hertfordshire Care Providers Association or directly by us. We'll then pass your information on to the NHS.
You can now also book your appointment through the NHS national portal.
The NHS will be in touch with care provider organisations to arrange for vaccinations. If you have any queries about this process, or you're yet to hear from the NHS, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You'll find additional information at Hertfordshire Care Providers Association.
Frontline care staff can now also book their appointment through the NHS national portal until the end of February.

If you have any concerns please talk to your social care team or email email@example.com.
You should now get your vaccination if you are aged 16+ and support an adult who:
- is at high risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19
- you have close personal or face to face contact with.
Carers of children are not included in this phase, unless the child has serious neuro-disabilities and other complications.
If you receive Carer's Allowance, you don’t need to wait to be contacted. You can book an appointment at a vaccination centre or community pharmacy-led service now, via the national booking service or by calling 119. If you can't attend any of the vaccination centres offered through the national booking service, wait for us to contact you. We will offer you an appointment at our GP-led vaccination centre instead.
If you are registered with your GP as an unpaid carer, your GP will contact you to arrange your vaccination.
If you don't receive Carer's Allowance and you're not registered as a carer, please check your GP’s website for further information.
The NHS is working closely with social care services colleagues and organisations that represent carers to put in place arrangements to offer the vaccine as soon as possible to other carers who will be eligible to receive a vaccine but don’t meet the current criteria mentioned above. For example, if you are known to be a carer by social services or Carers in Herts, you will be contacted in the coming weeks. For other carers who are not known by social services or other organisations, we will provide information for you and share this as widely as possible – do look out for more information.
