People in their 30s could be offered their first Covid vaccine appointment within the next week, it has been reported. Officials are said to be close to finalising a deal that will roughly double the UK’s original order of 40 million Pfizer Covid jabs, The Times reports. This order will then be used to offer younger people an alternative vaccine to the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab.
It was previously stated that those aged between 35 and 39 would be invited to book their first dose of a Covid vaccination towards the end of May. The Government is aiming to have all adults in the UK offered a jab by the end of July.
