Third Covid vaccine

The Daily Mirror celebrates what it calls a “top up” for half a million people but says confusion remains about who else may be offered an additional jab.

The Daily Telegraph quotes Whitehall sources who say a decision on a wider booster programme could be announced next week.

The Daily Mail says the government is to “give Britain the booster it needs!”

Dominic Raab grilled by MPs

The Metro goes with the headline “Raab on the rack”, while the Guardian and the online-only Independent focus on claims that a warning about the potentially rapid fall of Afghanistan was included in a report the foreign secretary was given in July.

The Times’ Oliver Wright, concludes that Mr Raab left the hearing “politically bruised, but without having sustained any killer blows”.

‘Tax on the sick’

The main story in the Financial Times claims the UK’s Trident nuclear submarines could be moved abroad if Scotland becomes independent.

The headline on the front of the Daily Express calls plans to make people in England aged between 60 and 65 pay NHS prescription charges a “tax on the sick.”
