Changes to Timescales for 2nd Covid Vaccination Appointments

As of Friday 14th May, the government has requested that appointments will be brought forward from 12 to 8 weeks for the remaining people in the top 9 priority groups who have yet to receive their second dose of a vaccine. This is to ensure people across the UK have the strongest possible protection from the virus at an earlier opportunity.

We are working towards fulfilling this announcement, vaccine delivery allowing, and our expectation is that by the end of May our invites will be going out in week 7 for vaccination in week 8.

For invites for first doses, we are now inviting our 30-39 cohort, working down in years as vaccine allows. All 36–39-year-olds will have been invited by 20th May 2021.
