Get Boosted Now

I make no apology for repeating this message - if you have not already done so, and are not one of the very small number of people who have a specific condition or are receiving other treatment which makes you one of those who should not take the jab, please protect yourself, your family, your community and the NHS by booking your vaccinations.

Yesterday, the Prime Minister held a press conference urging everyone to get boosted now – to protect themselves and others against Omicron.

  • The Omicron variant is spreading extremely fast in the UK – yesterday we recorded the highest number of cases since the beginning of the pandemic, and the doubling rate in some areas is now down to less than two days.
  • We know that two vaccine doses, while they do provide some immunity, are not enough to give maximum sufficient protection against Omicron – getting a booster jab reduces your risk of catching the Omicron by three quarters and is more important than ever. 
  • That is why the government launched the Omicron emergency boost – a national mission to give every eligible adult the chance to get their booster before the new year, and as of yesterday, every eligible adult can now use the national booking service to book their booster jab – with a record 650,000 boosters delivered on Tuesday alone.
  • The message to everyone is get boosted now – to protect yourself, your friends and your family against this new variant.
