42s and over can now book Covid vaccinations

The NHS coronavirus vaccine booking system has opened to healthy people aged 42 and over.

The national booking system has been extended for the second time in two days to allow more healthy adults in their 40s to book their jab.

People in England who are aged 42 and over, or those who will turn 42 before July 1, can now arrange their vaccine appointment through the national booking website.

You can only use this service if any of the following apply:

  • you’re aged 42 or over
  • you’ll turn 42 before 1 July 2021
  • you’re at high risk from COVID-19 (clinically extremely vulnerable)
  • you have a condition that puts you at higher risk (clinically vulnerable)
  • you have a learning disability
  • you’re an eligible frontline health or social care worker
  • you get a Carer’s Allowance, get support following an assessment by your local authority or your GP record shows you’re a carer

If you’re an eligible unpaid carer but you cannot book an appointment, speak to your GP surgery.
