All UK adults set to be offered Covid booster to ward off Omicron with announcement today
The Daily Mirror says Millions more people could be offered booster jabs as advisers consider extending them to all adults under emergency measures to limit the spread of the Omicron variant.
A decision from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) on expanding the programme and cutting the gap before a third dose could come as early as Monday.
Health Minister Edward Argar said he had not yet seen formal advice from the JCVI, but “I hope it will come hopefully later today.” He added: “We’d expect that within the coming hours.”
Teachers and pupils in Year 7 and above are now being “strongly advised” to wear masks in communal areas outside classrooms in England.
