This follows the roll-out of the programme to those aged over 60, people those aged 16 to 64 years with certain underlying health conditions and a number of unpaid carers.

Work is now underway to deliver the vaccine to the last two priority groups (ages 55-59 and 50-54) - and everyone aged over 50 should now have received an appointment to attend a vaccination session in the next few weeks.

The aim is to complete the vaccination for these final two priority groups by mid-April 2021 in line with national targets.

Anyone in the nine priority groups who has not yet received an appointment can complete the form on the NHS Inform website or call the Covid-19 Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013.
