THIRTY-year-olds are now eligible to receive the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

The age bracket for the vaccine has been lowered once again, and those aged 30 and 31 can now receive a vaccination for the virus.

It comes as the government has plans to offer the first dose to all adults by the end of July to help protect against the Indian variant of the virus and to prevent it from spreading.

Over 50s and those deemed to be clinically vulnerable could have their second dose brought forward to eight weeks to help offer protection against new variants.

People aged 39 and under, and pregnant women will be offered the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine as an alternative to the AstraZeneca vaccine.
