*SYSTEM STOPS TAKING APPOINTMENTS FOR THOSE AGED 40 AND OVER. FULL STORY HERE
Residents aged over 40 in Gedling borough can book an appointment for their Covid jab from today (March 15).
The NHS confirmed this morning that the local covid-19 vaccination booking system will now be open to people aged 40 and over.
If you are eligible, you can book your Covid-19 vaccination appointment by visiting the booking link or call the local booking line on 0115 883 4640 between 8am – 8pm during weekdays and 9am – 5pm on weekends.
Amanda Sullivan, accountable officer at NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG, said: “We are delighted to announce that our local vaccination programme will be opening up to all those aged 40 and over.
“We know the public has been waiting patiently for their turn to be vaccinated and now we are able to open up the programme further to include all those aged 40 and over. We are vaccinating huge numbers of people and over the comings week we will see more younger people in our communities receiving the vaccine. It’s a significant milestone for the programme.
“The staff and volunteers at our vaccination sites are working extremely hard to vaccinate our population at great pace and I would like to thank them for their continued hard work as we move into this next stage of the programme, which also includes administering second doses.
“Anyone who is eligible can book in for their vaccination via the local booking site or by calling 0115 883 4640. I would urge anyone in this category to take up vaccination to help protect themselves against Covid-19.
“People in the priority groups which have already been announced have not missed their chance to get jabbed. If you haven’t yet taken up the offer, please do come forward and make an appointment – the vaccine is safe, simple, and will offer you and those around you the best protection against this virus.”
We are working closely with the local councils during the pandemic. The County Council are supporting us with managing requests for information and assistance related to the vaccine rollout so if you have any questions that are not answered by the information here please contact [email protected] or call 0300 500 80 80.
