PEOPLE aged 30 and 31 in England are being invited to book to have their first dose of Covid vaccine.
The NHS is urging these million or so to take up the offer of a jab at one of the 1,600 available locations, including mosques, museums and rugby grounds, as well as pharmacies.
Nearly three-quarters of adults in the UK have already had one dose, and more than two-fifths have had two.
The government plans to offer first doses to all adults by the end of July.
Two doses are needed for strong protection against Covid, particularly the variant first found in India – also known as B.1.617.2 – that is driving some regional outbreaks in parts of the UK.
