Support is in place for Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) individuals, who must follow separate shielding guidance during the national lockdown.
If you’re in this group, you will previously have:
- Received a letter from the NHS or your GP telling you this.
- Been advised to shield in the past.
The Clinically Extremely Vulnerable will get priority access to vaccination against COVID-19, in line with the priority ordering set by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation. You’ll be contacted again by the NHS with more information on when and how you’ll be invited to get the vaccine.
The full guidance and further information can be found on the Government’s website
