There are currently no plans to review the format of letters of invitation for a COVID-19 vaccination.
The letter informs the recipient that they have a choice in how they get vaccinated. Local vaccination centres including those run by general practitioner surgeries and local Primary Care Networks are available.
Patients booking vaccination appointments can choose a site that meets their accessibility needs and transport requirements and will be informed of the distance of the site from the postcode they have entered.
