The NHS has informed us (as of 18th Feb) of changes to the national booking system which allows front-line health and care workers and those groups who are eligible, to self-refer for Covid vaccinations.

If you have front line staff who are working face to face with vulnerable customers and regularly spending 15 minutes+ with them but have not yet been offered a vaccination, please inform them that they need to self-refer to make sure that their information has been received and logged with the NHS.

Anyone wishing to receive the vaccine must be from one of the groups on the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) priority cohort, see here.

You will have to provide proof of eligibility, for example, a letter from your organisation and ID.

If you meet the above criteria, please visit the NHS covid vaccine self-referrals page to book an appointment.
