Anyone living in the UK can receive the vaccine free of charge in line with the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) prioritisation groups. All constituent four nations agreed to follow the advice of the JCVI for phase one deployment, and each administration is responsible for vaccine deployment across their respective geographies and for offering a vaccine to people resident there.
