Faced with “an Omicron tidal wave” sweeping the United Kingdom, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced Sunday evening a strong acceleration of the vaccine booster campaign, with the objective of offering a third dose of vaccine against Covid-19 to all adults by the end of December.
Banking on this third dose to avoid overwhelming hospitals and crippling the economy, Boris Johnson announced the goal of one month to offer this booster shot to all over 18 in England. They will now be able to benefit from it before the New Year.
