Two hospital trusts are among the first in the country to begin offering a 24/7 Covid vaccination programme.

The University Hospitals of Birmingham and Nottinghamshire’s Sherwood Forest Hospitals trusts have been chosen to pilot the round-the-clock jabs from Wednesday.

Currently the standard opening time for vaccination centres is 08:00 to 20:00.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has previously said he aimed to extend the hours when supply allowed it.
