Coronavirus vaccine news latest – Over 35s to start getting jabs within weeks as 20m now live in ‘covid free’ areas

OVER 35s will be offered the coronavirus vaccine within weeks, it has been revealed.

Those aged 40 and over were told they are now eligible to get the jab with health bosses expanding the scheme to a million more adults.

And it was revealed over 35s are expected to start being offered vaccines by May 10.

Officials have yet to take a decision on whether the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine should be used in people in their 30s.

Current advice is for people under 30 to be given alternative jabs if available, due to the risk of rare blood clots but the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation is now considering raising the age limit.

More than 34 million Brits have now had their first Covid jab, with a further 14 million having both shots.
