People aged 60 to 63 in the region are now encouraged to be vaccinated against the coronavirus

The last batch of letters came in yesterday and will mean everyone in the first seven priority groups will have received the vaccine

People aged 64 were asked to take a hit last week – and letters have started arriving at homes of people aged 60 to 63 explaining how they can arrange a vaccination through the national reservation service

Alison Tonge, Regional Director of Commissioning at NHS England and NHS Improvement in the Midlands, said: ‘In just a few short months the NHS has made extraordinary progress in vaccinating over 17 million people across the country and it is incredible that more than 9 in 10 people aged 65 and over have already benefited from potentially life-saving protection

“It is thanks to the hard work of NHS staff, volunteers and everyone else supporting the immunization program that we can now invite all people aged 60 to 63 to make an appointment. sting as quickly as possible

“It is never too late to accept the offer and I urge all eligible people who have not yet done so to come forward and protect themselves and others”

People can use the nationwide reservation service to book a slot at one of over 100 NHS vaccination centers or nearly 200 services run by pharmacies across the country

The reservation service is accessible at nhsuk / covid-vaccination – those who cannot connect online can call 119 for free
