Booster blitz as six million receive COVID-19 booster jab

 

NHS COVID-19 vaccination rollout continues to protect the country against the virus.

Six million people in England have now received their COVID-19 booster vaccine top-up as the NHS COVID-19 vaccination rollout continues to protect the country against the virus.

Millions of eligible people have come forward for vital extra protection offered by the booster since the programme launched just over six weeks ago, including well over half of eligible over 50s, and delivery of vital top-ups averaging one million per week so far.

It comes on the back of last week’s record with nearly 1.6 million boosters delivered in seven days – including 710,000 reported doses last Friday and over the weekend alone.
