We need 25,000 Jabs Army volunteers to help give booster jabs and fight Omicron strain
THE Sun today issues a fresh call for Jabs Army volunteers — with all over 18s set to be offered a Covid booster sooner to fight the Omicron strain.
With a third UK case discovered yesterday, we need 25,000 volunteers to help give booster jabs.
It comes as one vaccine expert admitted that over 18s will “have an offer of a booster earlier than we had previously envisaged”.
Professor Anthony Harnden, deputy chairman of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, said extending the age range for boosters and reducing the delay before receiving them was “a sensible strategy”.
He said under-40s “should expect” to get the booster earlier than expected because of Omicron.
