All adults aged over 18 will be able to book their Covid vaccination by the end of this week, the head of the NHS in England has said.

Speaking at a virtual annual conference of health leaders organised by the NHS Confederation, Sir Simon Stevens said: “I expect that by the end of this week, we’ll be able to open up the national booking service to all adults aged 18 and above.”

Last night British prime minster Boris Johnson announced a further delay to the proposed end of lockdown.

After the government’s announcement, The NHS boss said: “It is now very important that we use the next four weeks to finish the job to the greatest extent possible for the Covid vaccination programme which has been a historic signature achievement, in terms of the effectiveness of delivery by the National Health Service with over 60 million doses now administered.
