A spokesperson for NHS West Essex CCG said: "The NHS vaccination programme continues to make strong progress in West Essex and last week people aged 55 and over and unpaid carers were the first to get text alerts from the national booking service, allowing them to arrange their appointments even more quickly and simply.
“We’d encourage everyone to book and attend their vaccination when it’s their turn.”
