When it's your turn to get the vaccine, you'll be notified by a letter or we will announce which priority group is next across the media.
When you go to your appointment
Arrive no longer than 15 minutes before your appointment.
When you go to your appointment, you'll need to:
- bring proof of address
- bring ID confirming date of birth
- bring letter from the vaccination team if you're clinically extremely vulnerable or clinically at risk
- wear a mask
- wear warm but loose clothing to make sure the vaccine can be administered to the upper arm
The average time for appointments is 30 to 45 minutes. This includes a booking in, the vaccination and then a 15 minute wait afterward.
After you get the vaccine
We ask you wait 15 minutes after your vaccination in a supervised waiting area.
You can carry on with your day as normal after this time as long as you feel well. If your arm is particularly sore, you may find heavy lifting difficult. If you feel unwell or very tired you should rest and avoid operating machinery or driving.

Types of vaccine
In the UK and Jersey, there are two types of COVID-19 vaccine that are currently being used:
- Pfizer BioNtech vaccine
- AstraZeneca (Oxford) vaccine
Both require two doses to provide the best protection. Both have been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials.
We have limited supplies of the vaccine and so you'll be offered the vaccine that is available. You'll be advised of the vaccine at your appointment.

Second dose of vaccine
It's important to have both doses of the vaccine to give you the best protection. After you attend for your first dose you'll be given a second appointment. You must plan to attend your second appointment.
You'll receive a record card, text or email confirmation of when your next dose is due. This will be 10 to 12 weeks after your first dose of the vaccine.

If you feel unwell
If you're unwell, it's better to wait until you have recovered to have your vaccine, but you should have it as soon as possible. If you have COVID-19 you can have the vaccine 4 weeks following a positive test. You should not attend a vaccine appointment if you're:
- waiting for a COVID-19 test
- unsure if you're fit and well
