The NHS is getting into the Christmas spirit after launching its 'JABvent' calendar to encourage people to book their flu and Covid vaccinations online.

Until Thursday, December 14, people can book appointments via the national system, NHS App and 119 phone service.

After this date, regional services will take over but with fewer Covid slots and potentially further to travel for appointments.

Following that people can continue to book their Covid vaccine through services in their area until January 31, when the vaccinations will close and people will have to wait for a future seasonal campaign.
