UK Covid live news: Johnson to announce ‘last piece of jigsaw’ vaccine booster rollout as part of winter plan
Latest updates: PM to confirm booster jabs for the over-50s, as part of the government’s winter plan for Covid
Good morning. As my colleagues Aubrey Allegretti and Peter Walker reports, later today Boris Johnson will confirm the start of a booster jabs programme for the over-50s, as part of an announcement about the government’s winter plan for Covid.
This is probably the last piece of the jigsaw to allow us to transition this virus from pandemic to endemic and I hope by next year we will be in a position to deal with this virus with an annual inoculation programme as we do flu.
