How to get a vaccine if you're eligible

To get vaccinated you can:

Get the recommended number of doses for the best protection

One dose of the vaccine should give you good protection from COVID-19 from 3 or 4 weeks after you've had it. The advice for most adults is they should get two doses, plus a booster. Children of age 5 and above are recommended to get two or more doses.

If you've had COVID-19 recently, this will affect when you can have a vaccination.
