Those aged 25 and over in Milton Keynes can book a COVID-19 vaccination from tomorrow

The NHS COVID vaccination programme will start inviting anyone aged between 25 and 29-years-old tomorrow, on the six month anniversary of the first vaccinations in the UK.

NHS England chief executive, Sir Simon Stevens, explained the importance of this next stage as he said: "Tomorrow is a watershed moment as the world-beating NHS vaccination programme enters the home straight of our race to offer everyone their first dose.

"The NHS vaccination programme is a real team effort and it is a testament to NHS teams across the country, that we are able to open up to people in their twenties just six months on from delivering that world first jab to Maggie Keenan.

"The tireless efforts of NHS staff to protect the people they care for and their communities has quite simply saved lives, and when you get the text, you’re next.

"Getting the lifesaving COVID-19 jab is the most important thing you can do, with NHS staff vaccinating at over 1,600 sites including vaccine buses, places of worship, sport stadiums and other convenient locations. So, when you get that text, book your appointment and join the millions who are already protected."

People aged 39 and under who are eligible and pregnant women will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine in line with updated JCVI guidance.
