The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) are the independent experts who provide advice to Government on which vaccine(s) the United Kingdom should use, and which groups to prioritise. The JCVI and the sub-committee are currently reviewing evidence on risk factors associated with serious disease and mortality from COVID-19. Following a review of the evidence the Committee will develop advice on prioritisation of population and risk groups for any future COVID-19 vaccination programme.
