The first booster Covid vaccines were given to NHS and care workers today as the drive to top-up immunity in more than 30million Britons got up and running.

Staff at Croydon University Hospital in London gave the ‘thumbs up’ as they received their injection, just 48 hours after the booster scheme was signed off.

The Government’s vaccine advisory panel green-lit the move on Tuesday after weeks of deliberation, with over-50s, frontline workers and vulnerable Britons now eligible.

Its decision was vindicated last night when a major Israeli study on a million over-60s people showed a booster slashed the risk of severe Covid by 20-fold.

Eligible Britons are only being invited to come forward if they had their second jab at least six months ago, which officials said was the ‘sweet spot’ for boosters.

MailOnline’s analysis of official figures suggest only 1.6million Britons currently meet the criteria for top-up jabs, due to the six-month wait.

Third doses will be rolled out to the top nine priority groups during the initial drive, with the elderly, medics and carers first in line again.
