All over 40s in Milton Keynes can now book COVID-19 vaccine appointments

Everybody over the age of 40 in Milton Keynes are now being invited to have their COVID-19 vaccine.

It is the third time this week that England's vaccination rollout has been extended to protect even more people from the virus,  after it was offered to those over 44 on Monday and to over-42s on Tuesday.

Now, people aged 40 and over, or those who will turn 40 before 1 July, can arrange their jab appointment through the national booking website.

Formal invitations, which will either be a text message or letter, are also being sent out but there is no need to wait to receive them before booking an appointment. 

The booking service will show the next available appointment, which could either be at the Saxon Court Mass Vaccination Centre, or one of the many GP and pharmacy-led centres across the city. 

It will also give you the opportunity to book your second dose, which will be administered within twelve weeks of the first. 

Other people that can book their COVID-19 vaccine include those that are at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable), those that have a condition that puts them at higher risk (clinically vulnerable), those that have a learning disability, healthcare workers, and carers (paid and unpaid, including those on carer's allowance).
