Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccine

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine is safe and effective. It gives you the best protection against coronavirus. 

The NHS is currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus. In England, the vaccine is being offered in some hospitals and pharmacies, at hundreds of local vaccination centres run by GPs and at larger vaccination centres. You will also need to be registered with a GP surgery in England. The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). The vaccine will be offered more widely as soon as possible. 


The NHS will let you know when it’s your turn to have the vaccine. It’s important not to contact the NHS for a vaccination before then.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms

Self-isolating protects your friends, family and community and is an incredibly important and effective way of slowing the spread of COVID-19. We now know that people can pass the virus on even when they don’t have symptoms. It’s especially important to self-isolate if you are told you are a close contact of someone who has COVID-19, whether you feel unwell yourself or not.

If you, anyone you live with or members of your support bubble have any of the following symptoms you must not leave your home, other than to get tested:

  • A high temperature (above 37.8 C)
  • A new continuous cough.
  • Loss of taste or smell.

If you have symptoms you must self-isolate until you get your result. If you test positive you must self-isolate for 10 days.
If someone you live with or someone in your support bubble tests positive or if you have been contacted by track and trace you need to keep self-isolating for the full 14 days.
Even if you get a negative test you should still self-isolate as you could get symptoms within the 14 day period after being tested negative.

If you are able to provide any assistance during the current coronavirus crisis and would like to add your name to the FRA volunteer list, please email or call the FRA careline number.
