38- and 39-year-olds can book a coronavirus vaccine from today.
With the latest optimization of the roll-out, people under 40 who are not yet in a priority category can have their vaccination.
People in Lincolnshire can register for an appointment through the NHS website.
NHS England will text messages to 38- and 39-year-olds informing them that they can make vaccination appointments.
Vaccination centers across Lincolnshire have helped protect the majority of people in the county from the virus in recent months.
More than 68 percent of the region’s residents have now received at least their first dose, with a fifth of the district receiving their second dose.
Starting this morning, May 13th, at 7:00 a.m., the program opened for the first time to people in their thirties.
An NHS statement said: “38- and 39-year-olds are the first to qualify for a trick. Around a million people receive text messages that allow them to access the national booking service at the touch of a button. More invitations will follow Days and weeks.
“Moving to the next age group, along with nearly three-quarters of people between 40 and 49 years of age who received their first dose, comes less than two weeks after being offered a push.”
