Based on UK national guidance, those people who have Severe Asthma are eligible for vaccination in Priority Group 6.
Nationally this is defined as follows:
We currently expect to invite everyone in Priority Group 6 by the end of March.
People with mild or moderate asthma aged 18+ are not in Priority Group 6. In line with national guidance, this is because: “Those with severe asthma are at increased risk and included [in Priority Group 6]. Individuals with mild to moderate asthma are not at increased risk and not recommended for vaccination by JCVI.” They will be invited for vaccination with their age group and we aim to vaccinate everyone over the age of 18 by the end of July 2021.
Please do NOT call your GP or the Mass Vaccination Centre if you do not fit these criteria as GPs are need to be able to focus their support on patient care and are dealing with a high number of calls about the COVID vaccine.
