Following extensive trials, the first safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine has been approved in the UK and the NHS is starting to offer vaccinations to those at greatest risk from coronavirus.
The first vaccinations are being offered to people in the priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), starting with people aged 80 and over. Groups of GP practices are working together to provide local vaccination services and will contact eligible patients when it is their turn.
We know that many people will be keen to have the vaccination as soon as possible and we want to reassure you that we will be in touch when it is your turn. In Bradford district and Craven a significant number of our population are over the age of 80, which means we have lots of people to vaccinate. We are offering appointments first to those people aged over 80 who are most at risk from coronavirus. That includes those who are already attending hospital as an outpatient, and/or who have been discharged home after a hospital stay, and people living in care homes. You do not need to contact our GP practice for an appointment.
When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination, you will receive an invitation via the phone or through a letter either from your GP or the national booking system.
Please could we kindly ask you not to contact the practice for information about the vaccine or to ask for an appointment, as you will not be able to get one until you receive an invitation.
If you are invited for a vaccine, please act on your invite straight away and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them.
In the meantime, please continue to follow local restrictions, social distancing measures, and hand hygiene guidance, all of which will still save lives.
For more information about the vaccine, please see these frequently asked questions (add link or copy and paste from the document).

Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)
In summary, this means that in Bradford and district you must not:
- meet people you do not live with inside a private home or garden, except where you have formed a support bubble (or for other limited exemptions to be specified in law).
- visit someone else’s home or garden even if they live outside of the affected areas.
- socialise with people you do not live with in other indoor public venues – such as pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops, places of worship, community centres, leisure and entertainment venues, or visitor attractions. You may attend these venues with people you live with (or are in a support bubble with), but should avoid interaction with others.
- People are asked to follow The Covid Code:
- What can I do?
- Given the worrying infection rate across the district, Bradford Council is advising those that are shielding to protect themselves, not to take an unnecessary risk and not to follow the new shielding guidelines as of the 1 August 2020.
- What to do if you are shielding
- Keep your distance - keep at least 2 metres (3 steps) away from anyone you don’t live with.
- Face coverings - always wear a face covering when in a shop, on public transport and when you can’t follow the 2 metre rule
- Hygiene is key – wash your hands with soap and warm water often
- No handshake, no hugs, hands off - avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- Think of others - cough or sneeze into your elbow

- Stay safe - do not meet people you do not live with inside a private home or garden, except where you have formed a support bubble
- Do not visit - someone else’s home or garden even if they live outside of the district
- Stay indoors - isolate at home for 10 days if you have symptoms and 14 days if you live with someone who has symptoms
- No events - do not socialise with people you do not live with in other indoor public venues.
