As the Covid-19 vaccine roll-out continues across England, people are being advised to get their jab booked in if they fit the current criteria.

Since the Covid-19 vaccine was approved, the first jab has been given to the main priority groups, with under 70s now the priority for the NHS. 

Letters are still being sent to advise people to get the vaccine, but it is now possible to book it yourself too if you are in the following priority groups: 

  • You are aged 64 or over
  • You have previously received a letter saying you are at high risk from Covid-19 (clinically extremely vulnerable)
  • You are an eligible frontline health worker
  • You are an eligible frontline social care worker
  • You are eligible for carer's allowance

You also need to be registered with a GP surgery to be able to book your Covid-19 vaccine. 

If you are not eligible yet, you should wait to be contacted and the NHS will let you know when you can have a vaccine.

Over 90,000 people under the age of 70 were given the first dose of the vaccine up to February 14. 

The latest figures on the Covid-19 vaccination programme in Cambridgeshire in Peterborough will be confirmed on Thursday, February 25.
