We have attached an example of the vaccine invitation letter that will inform people of their vaccination appointment.

  • The letter will include an information leaflet about COVID-19 vaccinations and what to expect.
  • This will also contain information on how to access your appointment online, if this needs to be rearranged. Alternatively, you can call the national Covid-19 helpline who can rearrange your appointment for you.
  • There is a link on the back page to highlight access to alternative formats and languages.

How to rearrange or opt-out of your vaccination appointment

If you need to rearrange your COVID-19 vaccination appointment information on how to do so is available at this link.

You can also phone the COVID-19 Vaccination Helpline on 0800 030 8013 to rearrange your appointment.


Appointment letters for those aged 65-80

We are aware there are a small number of people in eligible cohorts who are yet to receive their letter. This has happened for a variety of reasons, including the date they were added to a cohort, recent temporary residency, or a simple lost letter.

Anyone within these categories who has not received a letter, or who has lost their letter, can arrange an appointment by providing some details.
