Age UK – Useful information about coronavirus vaccines

As the Coronavirus vaccination programme progresses we know that a number of our members have questions.

Age UK has put together some coronavirus vaccination FAQs. Follow the link by clicking on the headline to take you to the Age UK page which provides helpful information on how the vaccine works, what to expect when you have your appointment, and what to do if you can’t travel to a vaccination centre. It also explains why there is an up-to-12-week gap between doses, something many of you have asked me about.

When it’s time, you’ll be invited to get a vaccine by the NHS – this might be through a letter, email, text or phone call from your GP.

We know some of you are concerned about scams, so we also recommend reading this  Age UK blog   on what you should look out for. Remember, you’ll never be asked to pay for your vaccine or provide bank details to the NHS.
