Hurrah! Everyone 30 And Over Can Now Get Their Covid Jab

Young people who’ve been filled with vaccine envy for weeks will be thrilled to hear the vaccination programme is now open to people aged 30 and 31 years old – with twenty-somethings soon to follow them.

From Wednesday (May 26), vaccinations will be open to everyone in their thirties.

One million more people aged 30 and 31 will be invited by text over the coming days, leaving only adults between 18 and 29 yet to get their vaccination nod.

Those aged 39 and under who are now eligible, plus pregnant women, will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine where possible.

This comes after the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) updated its guidance to state that those under 40 should be offered an alternative to the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, due to a link with rare blood clots. The risk is very low, but slightly higher in younger adults.
