When will I get my jab?

You will probably be very keen to get your COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible. 

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus.

It’s being given to:

  • people aged 32 and over
  • people who are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable)
  • people who are at moderate risk from coronavirus (clinically vulnerable)
  • people who live or work in care homes
  • eligible health and social care workers
  • unpaid carers

The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI)

Plans are already being put in place for rolling out the vaccine to the next priority groups. If you are not in the groups described above, you will be contacted at a later date once you become eligible.

Find out more about when you’re likely to be invited, how you will book your appointment and where you can get your jab at When will I get my jab? | Sussex Health & Care Partnership (
