All UK adults can now book their booster jab
From this morning all adults over the age of 18 can book their booster jab, as we continue to rapidly expand our vaccination programme to strengthen our defences against Omicron this winter.
- The Omicron variant is extremely transmissible, and while vaccine efficacy against symptomatic infection is substantially reduced against Omicron with just two doses, a third dose boosts protection back up to over 70 per cent.
- That is why from today all adults can book their booster jab on our National Booking Service as we continue to rapidly rollout our booster jab programme. We have also removed the remaining countries from the travel Red List following our review of our travel restrictions, while maintaining testing requirements pending a review in early January.
- The single most important thing that every person can do is Get Boosted Now to protect yourself, your friends and your family, and our way of life.
