The UK’s vaccine rollout has been highly successful. Now all those aged 50 and over as well as the clinically vulnerable are set to receive a Pfizer booster shot as part of the Government’s new vaccination drive. This push to get the most at risk from Covid-19 vaccinated comes as the majority of adults have now received at least one dose of the vaccine.
The Pfizer vaccines are expected be used in the booster programme as this jab is considered to be the most effective against Delta variant
The vaccine programme is set to start this September, all those eligible will be encouraged to take up the jab.
Despite fears over the effectiveness of existing vaccines against new variants, a new study has revealed a third dose of Pfizer offers strong protection against the delta variant.
The Government plans to vaccinate 23 million in its booster scheme this September.
