From Around the World

In light of the new Pirola variant, the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) recently announced their plans to move Covid-19 and flu vaccination dates forward.

Millions of eligible people can book their Covid vaccines online from today, September 18.

Almost 5,000 sites ― more sites than ever before ― will be involved in the vaccine’s distribution.

Eligible people, including “all aged 65 and over, pregnant women and those with an underlying health condition,” will be contacted by the NHS from this week to encourage them to arrange a booking. Many will also receive an invitation to receive a flu jab.

“Over 30 million people are eligible to receive a flu vaccine and over 20 million are able to get a Covid jab,” the NHS explained.

You can book your vaccine here via the National Booking System, on the NHS app, or by calling 119.
