Over 70’s should now contact NHS for Covid-19 jab

CALL FOR PEOPLE AGED 70 AND OVER TO CONTACT NHS FOR A COVID JAB

People aged 70 and over, who have not yet been vaccinated against Covid and who would like to be, can now contact the NHS to arrange a jab.

This is to ensure absolutely nobody aged 70 and over is left out and can be vaccinated by the middle of this month. GP teams are also contacting their “clinically extremely vulnerable” patients over 18yrs, who were asked to shield last year, to ensure they have been offered the vaccine too.

The easiest way for you to arrange a vaccination is through the online national booking service at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination. The system allows you to choose a time slot and location that suits you.

Anyone unable to book online can call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm, seven days a week.

If a suitable and convenient slot is not available you can also call your GP practice.

Many who have been contacted but have not booked an appointment are receiving follow up letters and phone calls this week to encourage them to take up the offer of a jab.

If you have been given two vaccination appointments you should cancel the one don’t want so the slot can be used by someone else.
