ALL ADULTS CAN NOW BOOK A COVID-19 VACCINATION

We're finally there - with the news that eligibility to book a vaccination has been extended down to people aged 18 and 19, all adults in the UK are now able to book an approved COVID-19 vaccination appointment.

I repeat:

Every adult in the UK can now book a life-saving Covid vaccine as we enter the final stretch in the race to protect the country and return to normality.

  • Vaccines are our route of the pandemic - vaccinated people are less likely to get Covid-19 symptoms, be admitted to hospital or die from the disease, and there is growing evidence that vaccinated people are less likely to pass the virus on to others. 
     
  • That is why it is vital for everyone who has not done so yet to come forward and get their jab, so we can build on the continued success of our historic vaccine programme - which has saved over 14,000 lives so far as part of a national effort to protect the country.
     
  • We are now approaching the final stretch in our race to vaccinate people as quickly as possible – so when you get the call, get the jab, so that we can put this pandemic behind us for good.
  • You can book a vaccination appointment by ringing 119 from 7am to 11pm seven days a week or by clicking on this link.

Remember that it is important to get BOTH jabs - for full protection against the "Delta" variant first identified in India which is now responsible for the majority of new cases spreading in Britain, you need two vaccination doses.

Remember also that it takes from two to four weeks after the jab for the protection to kick in.
