GPs have begun offering booster vaccines to patients under 40 against official NHS guidance.
People in their 30s who are not in high-risk groups in England are being sent text messages and emails by family doctors inviting them to book their top-up jab. Some have secured slots for appointments just 36 hours later. This contrasts sharply with the current policy of the NHS, which has not yet asked those under 40 to come forward and book their booster jabs.
