Get support if you’re clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus

Use this service if you have a medical condition which means you’re classed as being clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus.

You can use this service to:

  • get access to priority supermarket deliveries if you live in an area that’s at Local COVID Alert Level: very high (sometimes known as ‘tier 3’)
  • confirm whether you’d need additional support if you got a letter from the government telling you to start formal ‘shielding’
  • update your details - for example, your address

You can register yourself, or on behalf of someone else.

If you’ve already got priority supermarket deliveries, you’ll keep them.
