Coronavirus vaccines are now being offered to people aged 42 and over in England.
It is the second time this week that the vaccine booking system was extended to more people in their forties, after they were offered to those aged 44 and over yesterday.
Now, people aged 42 and over, or those who will turn 42 before 1 July, can now arrange their jab appointment through the national booking website.
The expansion of the vaccine programme comes as figures over the weekend confirmed more than half of the UK’s total population has received a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.https://d8e910075b149b09e92c02ea9f06e7c9.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.htmlAdvertisement
