People over 70 and those on the Shielded Patients List can now book their vaccine without an invitation
Until now, the NHS has asked people to wait until they are contacted about the vaccine to help ensure that those who are most vulnerable are protected first - and that remains the case for most people.
The NHS is now asking people aged 70 and over and clinically extremely vulnerable adults on the Shielded Patients List who have not been vaccinated yet to come forward and make an appointment.
The easiest way to arrange a vaccination is through the national booking service which can be accessed at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination.
Anyone unable to book online can call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7AM and 11PM, seven days a week.
