A spokesman for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG said the Moderna vaccine will join the Pfizer and the AstraZeneca jabs being offered in the city.

Like the other two, the Moderna vaccine takes two doses to offer full protection.

In recent weeks the focus has switched from offering residents their first dose to offering the second jab.

Nearly 20,000 Cambridgeshire residents had their second dose of the vaccine last week

Today it was confirmed those aged 45 and above can now book their COVID vaccine appointment, after it was announced all residents aged 50 and over have now been offered the jab.

Demand for appointments has been high, and there were reports of the booking web site crashing as a result earlier today.
