NHS invites people aged 60-plus to book life-saving COVID jab

Nine out of 10 people aged 65 and over have now had their first COVID vaccine, as invites to those aged 60 to 63 begin landing on doormats.

The NHS vaccination programme has jabbed more than more than 17 million people in a matter of weeks, including four in five people aged 65 to 69.

People aged 64 were invited to have a life-saving jab last week and 1.9 million letters have started arriving at the homes of those aged 60 to 63 today (Monday 1 March) explaining how they can arrange a vaccination through the national booking service.

Those most at risk are being vaccinated first in line with guidance from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

Thanks to #OurNHSPeople for delivering the biggest vaccination programme in NHS history.
