Covid booster: Hospitals and pharmacies urged to ramp up rollout
BBC News says NHS England is to issue detailed guidance to hospitals, pharmacists and GPs about the major expansion of the Covid booster vaccine programme.
Hospital hubs will be asked to offer jabs to the public as well as NHS staff and more pharmacies will be used.
The government aims to offer all adults in England a booster by 31 January, amid concern about the Omicron variant.
Boris Johnson urged people to get a jab but suggested they should not cancel Christmas plans.
During a Downing Street news conference on Tuesday he suggested people did not need to cancel Christmas parties and nativity plays, adding that the government was taking a “balanced and proportionate” approach in response to the new variant.
