Those aged over 35 are to be invited for their coronavirus vaccines this week.

Health secretary and West Suffolk MP Matt Hancock told The Andrew Marr show that those in the aged 35 to 38 would be the latest people to receive their jabs. 

Those aged 38 and 39 were made eligible for their vaccines last week as the programme looks to continue to offer vaccines to younger and younger people.

Suffolk remains one of the top areas for vaccinations in the country, with 40% of adults in the county having had both vaccines
