Almost half a million COVID-19 booster bookings in two days


Almost half a million people have booked in for their booster jab in just two days, as the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme continues to protect those most at risk from coronavirus.

In just two days last week (Wednesday and Thursday), there were almost half a million – 465,000 – bookings for boosters.

With more than 750,000 bookings over the past seven days, the National Booking Service had its busiest week of booster bookings since the campaign kickstarted just over one month ago.

The vaccination rollout, the biggest and fastest in NHS history, has ensured 38 million people across England have had both doses of the jab.

There are more clinics delivering vaccines now than at any other point in the programme, including pharmacies, GP practices and other convenient community sites – almost every person registered with an English GP practice lives within 10 miles of a fixed vaccination location.
