Britain’s Covid booster vaccine programme is being expanded to under-50s to safeguard against a winter wave, it was confirmed today. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation has recommended third doses are given to an extra 8million Britons in their forties. Eligible people can pre-book their vaccine five months after their second dose, but they will only get their booster after six months have passed. Conservative party chairman Oliver Dowden said that Christmas was ‘in our hands’ as he called on people to get their booster jabs.
