Following the emergence of the Omicron variant, including confirmed cases in the UK, the Government have ramped up the booster vaccination programme for all adults.
I was pleased on Saturday to receive my booster vaccine at the Saddlers Centre in Walsall.
The booster will be offered in order of age groups, with priority given to the vaccination of older adults and those in a COVID-19 at-risk group. In response to the changing risk posed by the Omicron variant, the booster will now be given no sooner than 3 months after the primary course.
Our booster programme is strengthening our wall of defence against the virus, helping to protect people from serious illness and save lives. So, please take your booster jab as soon as you are called.
