Over 45’s Invited for Vaccination in England

People aged 45 or over in England can now book a Covid vaccine, as the programme enters a new phase.

It comes after all over-50s and those in high-risk groups in the UK were offered a first dose of the vaccine.

People can book their appointments on the NHS website, which initially crashed on Tuesday morning when it opened up to the new age group.

The government have met their target of offering the first dose to the top nine priority groups by 15 April and has said it is on track to offer the first dose to all adults by the end of July.

It has now moved onto “phase 2” of the vaccination programme – which involves offering vaccines to healthy adults under the age of 50.

More than 32 million people in the UK have had their first vaccine dose.

On Saturday a record 475,230-second doses were given out, with more than 7.6 million people now fully vaccinated.
