People aged 40 to 49 will be able to book a Covid booster, and 16 to 17-year-olds will be able to receive their second dose, from Monday.

Dr David Vickers, medical director, Cambs Community Services NHS Trust, said: “The recent announcement that those aged 40 to 49 will be eligible for a booster six months after their second dose, and that 16 to 17-year-olds can access a second dose 12 weeks after their first dose, is great news.

“People in these age groups should be able to book an appointment via the National Booking Service. Currently these newly eligible groups cannot access their jabs on a walk-in basis.”
