Patients aged 60 and over are now eligible for their Covid Vaccination

Thursday, 04 March 2021

This week people aged 60 to 64 will be starting to receive their invitations to book their COVID jab. 

Letters will be arriving from the national booking service inviting them to visit or call 119 free of charge to arrange their appointment.

By following these steps, anyone in this group will be able to book an appointment at the larger vaccination centres or pharmacy led services. Extending the programme to those aged 60 and over means that everyone in the first seven priority groups are now eligible for their vaccination, with people aged between 50 and 60 set to be invited shortly.  

The NHS is encouraging everyone who has been invited to take up the offer. It doesn’t matter when you were invited, you can still come forward and protect yourself.
