Boris Johnson today received his coronavirus booster shot as he said the nation is ‘building ever higher the wall of protection’ against the Omicron variant – but ministers are still unable to say when under-40s will be able to book. The Prime Minister said the ‘most important thing you can do under all circumstances is get your booster when you are eligible’ as he urged people to get the jab when they are called forward to do so. He said 18.6million boosters have now been administered and insisted the doses are the UK’s best hope of fighting the new strain of the disease. He said: ‘Whatever Omicron may or may not be able to do, it certainly will not negate the overall value of the boosters.’ His comments came after Science Minister George Freeman suffered a car crash TV interview this morning as he was unable to say when people in their 20s and 30s will be able to get their booster.
