Next steps in the battle against COVID-19

Next week the Prime Minister will set out the next steps in our Covid response, protecting the gains of Britain's historic vaccine rollout that has allowed life to return to a sense of normality.  

  • Thanks to the efforts of the public, the NHS and our phenomenal vaccination programme, it was possible to proceed with Step 4 of the roadmap out of lockdown  in England on 19 July and return life to a sense of normality – but the winter months ahead will bring renewed challenges.
     
  • That is why next week, the Prime Minister will set out an autumn and winter plan for managing covid – including a final decision on the vaccine booster programme for the most vulnerable from the JCVI, and how the government intends to repeal powers that are no longer necessary from the Coronavirus Act.
     
  • Vaccines will continue to be our first line of defence over the months ahead, and the government urges everyone who does not have a specific medical reason not to do so to get both doses so we can protect the gains that have allowed us to unlock our economy and society.
