The NHS COVID vaccination programme continues its rollout to people in their 30s opening to people aged 36 and 37 from tomorrow (Tuesday).
More than one million more people will be eligible for a Covid jab with NHS.uk due to update at 7am.
Texts inviting people to book a vaccination will be sent, going to those aged 37 tomorrow (Tuesday) and to 36 year olds on Wednesday.
The texts will allow people to access the national booking service at the touch of a button and arrange an appointment at an NHS Vaccination Centre, pharmacy or GP vaccination site.
The move to the next age group comes as more than 930,000 appointments were made in the days since the NHS Covid vaccination programmes opened to 38 and 39 year olds.
More than three out of four people aged 40 to 49 – over five and a half million people have also received a vital first dose of protection.
The Government and the JCVI announced that second dose appointments will be brought forward from 12 to 8 weeks for those aged 50 and over who have yet to received theirs.
Nobody needs to contact the NHS. People should continue to attend their appointments unless told otherwise.
Text invitations appear as an alert from ‘NHSvaccine’, including a web link to the NHS website to reserve an appointment.
People who cannot go online can call the service on 119 instead to book their jab.
People 39 and under who are eligible and pregnant women will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine in line with recently updated JCVI guidance.
Covid vaccination clinics through the Kent Community Health Trust run at the Thanet Saga site. A GP hub also runs from the site. Clinics are also being run at various GP Surgeries.
