Live with it safely

Latest vaccination information

Thank you to everyone across Salford who has come forward for their COVID-19 vaccine. By taking this simple, safe, and effective way of protecting you and the vulnerable people you come into contact with, you are helping us fight the pandemic in Salford and get our lives back to normal. 

Getting your vaccine

It is never too late to get your COVID-19 vaccine. You can get the vaccine if you are:

  • Aged 16 years old and above
  • Aged 12 to 15 and either: 
    • live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
    • have a condition that means they're at high risk from COVID-19, such as:
      • Down's syndrome
      • a severe problem with the brain or nerves, such as cerebral palsy
      • severe or multiple learning disabilities (or they're on the learning disability register)
      • a condition that means they're more likely to get infections (such as some genetic conditions or types of cancer)

Please note: if your child is eligible and aged 12 to 15 years old, you'll be contacted directly to arrange their vaccine appointment. Children under 16 cannot attend walk-in clinics.
