Everyone over 16 can now get their COVID-19 jab
The vaccination programme has been extended to 16 and 17 year olds, the country’s most vulnerable children and those who live with vulnerable adults following changes to guidance. All remaining 16 year olds and 17 year olds who are not within three months of their 18th birthday will be offered one dose of the vaccine. Those aged 17¾ are now able to book their vaccination on the national booking service.
If you haven’t booked your first dose yet, the time to do so is now. You can find out how at nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or by phoning 119.
