UK: COVID-19 booster vaccination to all adults before the end of 2021.

British Prime Minister: will open the COVID-19 vaccination booster vaccination to all adults in the UK before the end of the year. 

 

At 8 pm local time on the 12th, British Prime Minister Johnson issued a television statement at the Prime Minister’s Office, announcing that by the end of the year, all adults 18 years of age and over in the UK will be provided with a booster shot of the COVID-19 vaccine to deal with the threat of rising cases of Omicron mutant strain infection.

Johnson said that no one has any doubts about the wave of infections caused by the Omicron mutant strain.

He believes that the two doses of vaccine have limited effects on the Omicron strain, but the good news is that scientists are confident in the booster shot. Johnson initiated the “Omicron Emergency Intensified Injection National Action” to encourage everyone eligible for vaccination to “immediately receive an intensified injection.”

 

Johnson said that the original goal was to have all adults vaccinated with booster shots by the end of January next year, but the Omicron mutant strain brought this goal forward by one month.

Starting on the 15th of this month, all adults who have received the second dose of vaccine for 3 months can make an appointment to receive the booster shot. Some vaccination centers will be open to all adults from the 13th of this month.

The British government has also deployed 42 military working groups across the UK to support more vaccination sites, allowing each clinic to be open 7 days a week and accept more appointments in the morning, evening and weekends.

 

On the 12th, the number of infections with the Omicron strain in the United Kingdom increased to 3,137, and the infected have been hospitalized. Before Johnson delivered his speech, the United Kingdom had raised the alert level of the COVID-19 pneumonia epidemic from level three to level four, second only to the highest level five.
