PEOPLE in Oxfordshire aged 21 and 22 are now eligible to book their Covid-19 vaccine.

This follows a Government pledge that all adults in England should be able to book their first jab by the end of this week.

Currently, only 18 to 20-year-olds are left to wait for the call as those who will turn 21 before July 1, 2021, can also book their first appointment.


The NHS said that from Wednesday it will contact nearlt one million people in the age group to invite them for a vaccination.

Dr Emily Lawson, lead for the NHS Covid vaccination programme, said: "The largest ever NHS vaccination campaign is in the home stretch of the first dose rollout.

"The vaccine is the most important step you can take to protect yourself, your friends and family so it’s really important everybody in the latest eligible groups books themselves in to get their jab and plays their part in this huge national effort."
