COVID-19 Vaccinations

COVID-19 Vaccinations in Lambeth

The NHS is undertaking the largest vaccination programme in its history. Covid-19 vaccinations are currently being offered to people most at risk from coronavirus.

JCVI advises that the first priorities for the COVID-19 vaccination programme should be the prevention of mortality and the maintenance of the health and social care systems. As the risk of mortality from COVID-19 increases with age, prioritisation is primarily based on age. The order of priority for each group in the population corresponds with data on the number of individuals who would need to be vaccinated to prevent one death, estimated from UK data obtained from March to June 2020:

  1. residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
  2. all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
  3. all those 75 years of age and over
  4. all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals (not including pregnant women and those under 16 years of age)
  5. all those 65 years of age and over
  6. adults aged 16 to 65 years in an at-risk group
  7. all those 60 years of age and over
  8. all those 55 years of age and over
  9. all those 50 years of age and over
  10. rest of the population (to be determined)
