When will the over 30s receive a Covid vaccine?

In the second phase of the coronavirus vaccination rollout programme, the vaccine is being offered to those under 50 years old in the following order:

- 40 to 49 years

- 30 to 39 years

- 18 years and over

In England, those aged 40 and over are now being invited to receive a Covid vaccine.

According to the NHS, you can get the Covid-19 jab in England if:

- you're aged 40 or over

- you'll turn 40 before 1 July 2021

You can book appointments at a larger vaccination centre or pharmacy now, or wait to be invited to go to a local NHS service.

Those in the 30-39 age group will begin to be invited for their Covid vaccine after all those in the 40-49 age group have been invited to receive a jab.

In Northern Ireland, the vaccine programme announced they have some limited availability for those aged 30 to 34 to book a vaccination, while in some areas in Wales 35-39 year-olds are being invited.

In Scotland, some under-30s are now being invited to receive a vaccine. You will receive a letter or phone call with your appointment details when you are eligible to receive a Covid vaccine.
