Public Health England has published braille, and large print versions of COVID-19 vaccination information.

The national booking letters are sent in size 16 point font as standard as defined by the RNIB. As well as providing an option to book on the National Health Service website, the national booking letters also provide 119 as an option. Booking information will be available in braille, audio, larger print and easy read soon. This is in addition to what general practitioners and Primary Care Networks are doing locally.
