Over 21’s can now book their Covid vaccination

16/06/2021

Over-21s in England have been invited to book their Covid-19 vaccination.

People aged 21 and 22 are able to book for the first time using the National Bookings Service.

It comes after the head of the NHS in England said that all adults in England should be able to book their first coronavirus jab by the end of the week.

Sir Simon Stevens told the NHS Confederation conference on Tuesday that the NHS will “finish the job” of the Covid-19 vaccination programme to the “greatest extent possible” over the next four weeks during the extension of lockdown.

The NHS said that from Wednesday it will contact 972,000 21- and 22-year-olds to invite them to book their vaccination.

This means only 18- to 20-year-olds are left to get the call.

Liverpool Cllr Frazer Lake, says it’s important to keep up the momentum which saw a record-breaking one million appointments booked nationally on the first day when over-25s became eligible.

“Sometimes young people can get a bad reputation because there’s a suggestion they are reluctant to follow guidelines but I think they are going to do whatever they can to make sure we get back to the closest version of normal as possible,” he says.

“It was amazing to see a million people on the website on the first day of 25+ and lots of them posting screenshots showing themselves in the queue to book. That in itself shows the eagerness is there.

 

Dr Emily Lawson, lead for the NHS Covid vaccination programme, said:

“The largest ever NHS vaccination campaign is in the home stretch of the first dose rollout.

“The vaccine is the most important step you can take to protect yourself, your friends and family so it’s really important everybody in the latest eligible groups books themselves in to get their jab and plays their part in this huge national effort.”
