The UK’s Covid vaccination programme rollout is continuing to progress, with those in younger age groups now being invited for the jab.
But when will those in the over-30s age group be invited for a vaccine?
Here’s what you need to know.
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 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.
