All over 60s who have yet to receive their coronavirus jab can now book an appointment online.

The NHS service is for anyone who falls into one of five groups, including people aged over 64-years-old.

The only condition is that you must be registered with a GP surgery in order to book your two vaccination appointments.

It comes after more than 18 million people in the UK received their first jab.

To qualify for the online vaccine booking service, you must be either; at least 64-years-old, clinically extremely vulnerable, an eligible frontline health worker or entitled to Carer's Allowance.

If you are not yet eligible, you should wait until the NHS gets in touch to let you know you can have the jab.

Last week the NHS began vaccinating people aged 65-69 years old through the national booking service.

On Sunday last week the NHS revealed two thirds of the 65-69 group had already received their first dose.

Letters have been sent out to about 445,000 people aged 64 who have not yet been vaccinated.

Those who receive letters can book online or call 119 free of charge anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week.

People can pick a slot at 100 vaccination centres or almost 200 pharmacy services.

Professor Stephen Powis, NHS medical director, said: "The NHS vaccination programme is the biggest in the health service's history and continues to go from strength to strength.

"Hard-working NHS staff have already protected more than 15 million of the most vulnerable people against Covid in a matter of weeks.

"However, if you have already been offered a jab, especially if you're aged 70 or over, but have not taken it up, it is not too late. Please come forward so the NHS can protect you against coronavirus immediately."
