People aged 65 - 69 and those who are clinically vulnerable against COVID are now being invited to book the vaccine. Once you've received your invitation, you can do this by logging on to the national booking service.

Anyone unable to book online can call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week.

People aged 70 or over should contact the national booking service while health and care workers should speak to their employers.

People who book into a vaccine centre will be greeted by volunteers who will marshal car parks and register them when they arrive.

They will receive a health status check and a pre-vaccination assessment before they have their jab.

Appointments are staggered to allow for social distancing and people who do book are being asked not to turn up early to avoid creating queues.

GPs are contacting those who are housebound to jab them at home.
