Key information for patients about the coronavirus vaccine
The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus.
We will let you know when it's your turn to have the vaccine. It's important not to contact the NHS for a vaccination before then. Please wait to be contacted.
Once you have been contacted please see under COVID-19 General Health Advice for information and directions on how to get to the Covid Clinics as these will not be held at
St Albans Medical Centre

At this time, the vaccine is being offered in some hospitals to:
- some people aged 80 and over who already have a hospital appointment in the next few weeks
- people who work in care homes
- health care workers at high risk
The vaccine will be offered more widely, and at other locations, as soon as possible.
The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
Currently we are offering COVID-19 jabs to our patients aged 80 and over. We do not have another delivery date at the moment and we will be contacting this age group soon.
We will also be contacting the group of patients who have already received a first dose of COVID-19.
Please follow us on this website as our reception team will not be able to give you any additional information. Thank you.
Meanwhile, we must all continue to adhere to stick to the local tier restriction rules and remember hands, face, space.
