The government is asking those eligible to use the online system if they can, or try calling again later if not.

Vaccine appointments for these groups will be available from Saturday 6 February.

Anyone who thinks they are high-risk but doesn't hear from their GP about getting an appointment is asked to contact their GP surgery for advice.
