The National Health Service highlights that coronavirus vaccines are effective. They give you the best protection against COVID-19.  

The COVID-19 vaccines currently available are given in two doses. You usually have the second dose 8-12 weeks after the first dose. 

Vaccination is free for anyone over 18 in the UK, regardless of visa or immigration status.
