Booster bookings boom as one million book life-saving jab in three days

More than one million booster jabs have been booked in the last three days as the NHS vaccination programme continues its drive to protect the most vulnerable from coronavirus this winter.

Around 356,000 boosters were booked this morning alone (midnight to midday 8 November) – around nine times more than last Monday morning when 38,600 appointments were made.

And over 670,000 appointments were booked across Saturday and Sunday, as latest data shows almost three in four people aged 75 and over have already had their top-up jab.

The surge in bookings comes as the NHS is now inviting those who had their second dose more than five months ago for their booster, allowing people to book their top-up jab in advance of becoming eligible so they can receive it as soon as they reach six months.
