A “record number” of coronavirus booster jabs were administered on Saturday, with more than 800,000 inoculations given in the past 72 hours, the NHS has said.
A total of 5.1 million third jabs have been given, with around half of people aged 50 and over – and those who are currently eligible – being given a dose.
Saturday was the biggest booster day on record, with 325,140 vaccines given.
Dr Nikki Kanani, GP and deputy lead for the NHS COVID-19 Vaccination Programme, said: “It’s fantastic to see so many coming forward to book in their vital vaccination.
“Getting your booster jab is essential and is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones this winter – the vaccine is safe and effective so please do go online if you’re eligible or call 119 to book in for your lifesaving booster today.”
