Roy Hodgson has added the Liverpool midfielder and Chelsea full-back Ryan Bertrand to his party for Friday's game against San Marino and the following Tuesday's trip to Poland.
Bertrand is a direct replacement for Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs, who has dropped out with a thigh injury, while Shelvey steps up from the Under 21 squad as cover for Frank Lampard.
Lampard (knee) is a doubt after limping out of Chelsea's victory over Norwich at the weekend, and Hodgson has turned to the 20-year-old Shelvey ahead of the experienced Gareth Barry.
Shelvey is the third uncapped player in the squad along with Ryan Shawcross and Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster.
