NHS invites all adults to get a COVID jab in final push

Everyone aged 18 and over is being urged to arrange a jab if they have not had one as the NHS COVID Vaccination Programme, the biggest in health service history, begins the final push to protect the country.

The NHS will send around 1.5 million texts to people aged 18-20 in what Sir Simon Stevens called a “watershed moment”.

If you are 18 or over and you haven’t booked your first dose yet, the time to do so is now. You can find out how at or by phoning 119. If you’re eligible but unable to book through the national booking service, you can speak to your GP.

The NHS in England has now delivered more than 60 million vaccinations with over 35 million adults, in England, receiving their first vaccine dose, and nearly 26 million having their second jab.
