The coronavirus vaccine rollout continues within the UK with millions of people now receiving their first jab.
The Government has announced that the programme would soon reach out to over 40s within England as the rollout continues throughout the country.
Meanwhile, the Moderna vaccine will start to be used in England from today and more than 20 sites across England will initially use the nation’s third approved vaccine.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “From today the NHS in England will begin using the Moderna vaccine, following the start of the UK roll out in Wales last week.
“The vaccine has already been used widely in other countries and approved by our medicines regulator as it met the highest standards of safety and effectiveness.”

According to the NHS website, you need to be aware that you:

You can book it for another person if you want.
