Patients in England who have previously been identified as someone who is clinically extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 have been told by the Government that they "are no longer at substantially greater risk than the general population, and you are advised to follow the same guidance as everyone else on staying safe and preventing the spread of COVID-19".

It has also produced information for patients with weakened immune systems due to a particular health condition or because they are on medication or treatment that supresses the immune system. The advice includes ensuring patients in this group have had all of the vaccines that they are eligible to receive and continue to follow any advice their specialist consultant has given them.
