Guidance for clinically extremely vulnerable

Information about shielding, a measure to protect extremely vulnerable people.

The Government has now paused shielding as it gradually eases COVID-19 restrictions.

If you have already registered for priority access to supermarket delivery slots, supermarkets will continue to offer priority access until 21 June 2021.

You might still want to ask friends, family or volunteers to collect medicines for you. The NHS Volunteer Responders programme is still supporting those who need it. Call 0808 196 3646 between 8am and 8pm, seven days a week or visit the NHS volunteer responders website.

Find out more about coronavirus support that might be available on the Government's website.
