SCORES of people are trying to book their Covid booster jabs ahead of New Years ahead of Boris Johnson’s announcement on Sunday night (December 12).
The goal of giving every adult in England a booster shot has been brought forward a month for fear of an “Omicron tidal wave” which could cause “scores of deaths”.
Boris Johnson, in a pre-recorded address to the nation on Sunday evening, said Britain “urgently needs to strengthen our vaccine protection wall” as he sets a new deadline to hit everyone over 18 years into the new year.

From today (Monday, December 13), anyone over the age of 18 is eligible for the Covid booster vaccine.
You can get a booster dose at a walk-in site if it has been three months (91 days) since your 2nd dose.
The NHS in England has also advised people trying to book a Covid-19 reminder jab online to try later or tomorrow as people face a queue on the website.
In a tweet, the health service said: “The Covid vaccine reservation service is currently facing extremely high demand and therefore operates a queue system.
“For users aged 18 to 29, please note that the reservation opens Wednesday, December 15.
“For all the others who are waiting, we recommend that you try again later today or tomorrow. ”
