More than 27.5 million receive first dose of COVID-19 vaccine

More than 27.5 million adults, in England, have received their first vaccine dose, and more than 9 million have now had their second jab.

If you are 45 or over, have a health condition that puts you at greater risk, are a health or social care worker or an unpaid carer, and 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. People are also urged to come back for their second dose when they are contacted or if they have an appointment booked.

Those who booked online can remind themselves of the place and the time of their second dose using the ‘manage my appointments’ section at nhs.uk.

If you’re eligible but unable to book through the national booking service, you can speak to your GP.
