Milton Keynes integrated care board submit “last chance” call over COVID-19 vaccinations

    Thousands of eligible people in Milton Keynes and surrounding areas who have not yet come forward for COVID-19 vaccinations have been reminded that they have only a few days left to get their jab before the offer ends on 30 June.

    You or your child may be offered a seasonal COVID-19 vaccine if you are:

    • aged 75 years old or over (or will turn 75 by 30 June 2024);
    • aged 6 months to 74 years old and have a weakened immune system;
    • living in a care home for older adults.

    The Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire, and Luton integrated care board have advised you will not be able to book a spring COVID-19 vaccine appointment online or by calling 119 after 29 June 2024.  The last date you will be able to have your spring COVID-19 vaccination is 30 June 2024.

    Dr Eleanor Powers, Head of Public Health Commissioning (Immunisation) for the NHS in the East of England said, “It’s really important to get your COVID-19 booster vaccination while it is still on offer, as it helps reduce the risk of catching the virus while also improving your recovery time should you get infected.  I urge you to take up this potentially life-saving, free vaccination while it is still available up until the end of June.  It’s so easy to book an appointment, offered at local pharmacies, GP practices and walk-in clinics, so get it while you can!”

    You can double-check your eligibility online, and get your vaccination at many local pharmacies.
