Get Boosted now
The Prime Minister has reiterated his call for everyone to Get Boosted Now, and announced free daily lateral flow tests for 100,000 critical workers in England, helping keep essential services and supply chains running.
- The government has taken significant steps in the fight against Omicron, including implementing Plan B, setting up local Nightingales, increasing testing capacity and ramping up our booster programme – but this variant continues to cause significant disruption across the country.
- 100,000 critical workers have ben identified who will be offered free lateral flow testing for every working day from 10 January – helping keep essential services and supply chains running.
- The Prime Minister praised all those involved in reaching our target of offering every eligible adult the chance to get their booster by the New Year, with 34 million third doses now delivered – as he reissued his call for everyone eligible to Get Boosted Now.
- Together with the Plan B measures, we have a chance to ride out this Omicron wave without shutting down our country once again – but we must remain cautious as the weeks ahead will be challenging.
