You can register online for a COVID-19 vaccine if you aged 16 to 69. This includes healthcare workers in that age group.
COVID-19 vaccines are still available to all frontline healthcare workers who have not yet been vaccinated, regardless of their age. Frontline healthcare workers can get their vaccine quickly by emailing their CHO contact.
You can also go to a ‘walk-in vaccination clinic’ without an appointment if that's an option at a vaccination centre near you (starting Friday 30 July).
Healthcare workers can register online
If you are a healthcare worker and have not previously registered for a vaccine, register online for your COVID-19 vaccine through the public registration system.
People aged 18 to 34 waiting for their first vaccination appointment will have a choice to opt in or out of getting the AstraZeneca vaccine at a vaccination centre if an mRNA vaccine is not available. You'll be able to opt in through your online registration account.
People aged 18 to 34 and people aged 50 or over also have the option to get a vaccine through a pharmacy, instead of registering online. Many pharmacies are offering the Janssen single-dose COVID-19 vaccine. Find a pharmacy to book your vaccine appointment
Second dose AstraZeneca vaccine
Being fully vaccinated means that you will have better protection against COVID-19 illness. It also gives you better protection against new variants of the virus, including the Delta variant.
If you had your first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, you should get a second dose of the same vaccine.
Some people have decided not to get a second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine. If you had a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine and you do not want a second dose of AstraZeneca, you can choose to get an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine dose instead. This will mean that you are fully vaccinated.
Frontline healthcare workers
Frontline healthcare workers can also register for their vaccine by email.
You only need to register by email if you have not registered online.
You will get your vaccine at a vaccine clinic in the area you live in.
