UK Preparing Plans For Autumn Booster Jabs Against Covid-19

UK health secretary Matt Hancock says the government will soon be announcing its plans for nationwide covid booster jabs in the autumn.

The health minister said a trial of different vaccine combinations, which launched last month , is nearing its conclusion.

Doctors and NHS trusts said planning for a booster rollout must start now as it will involve bigger challenges.

As before, the longer term effects of this vaccine will be conducted on those who decide to take a third shot and with talk of surging covid cases and the possibility of more lockdowns, no doubt people will be ready and waiting to get their booster.

RT reports: Speaking to BBC Breakfast on Monday, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the authorities were currently trialing a number of vaccine combinations that could boost Britons’ immunity against the novel coronavirus and its many variants. 

“In the next few weeks, when we get the clinical data through on what’s the most effective combinations to have … then we’ll set out all the details for the booster programme for the autumn,” Hancock stated.

The UK’s Cov-Boost trial, which tests a variety of vaccine combos, has become increasingly relevant, given the current prevalence of the Indian virus variant, known as Delta. 

Scientists, including Dr Susan Hopkins, strategic response director for Covid-19 at Public Health England, have warned of the prospect of further lockdowns later in the year. “I can’t predict the future – it really depends on whether the hospitals start to become overwhelmed at some point,” Hopkins told the BBC’s Andrew Marr. 

On Sunday, the day before the UK’s lockdown was originally scheduled to end, the country registered 9,284 Covid-19 cases, many of which are the Delta variant. 

The UK had hoped that CureVac, a German biotech firm, would provide a booster jab for the country this autumn. However, last week, the company’s trial revealed that its vaccine was only 47% effective. 

Meanwhile, US firm Novavax published extremely positive trial data last week, with its vaccine proving more than 90% effective against a variety of virus variants. The jab will be produced in the UK, if granted approval.


    • Science hadn’t invented all these diseases And I’d bet they discovered the bubonic plague all those centuries ago too Just as I’m quite intrigued as to how hemophilia suddenly ” disappeared ” from Queen Victoria’s descendants and of course warfarin which given to an infant or child or anyone actually ,will produce all the symptoms of hemophilia ,has had many names in the past too and even royal.peiple make the mistake of trusting authority figures Just like Michael Jacksons ” milk” was prescribed to the Romanovs under the name Veronal during ww1 when the children all mysteriously contracted measles all at the sane time ,just before the abdication .Just like all of Louis the XV s children died under medical care except one ,and then only because his nanny refused to let the Drs treat him but nursed him herself .The other i think maybe 9 all died But it is hard to remember all the details of so many common incidents amongst so many centuries of monarchs so dont quote me !,

    • It’s not the hackers who want kess depositors ,its those who now dont need workers because of technology and d8nt want excess supply of redundant resources Fir quite a while now the only use nist people has been is as consumers and that includes easily 50 % of workers who are only employed because they need to put them to some seemingly productive use They dont need them They have to make up things for them to do Its all a show They are only useful as tax deductions Liabilitues

  1. I don’t believe at all that any dr who has seen victims blinded paralysed killed by the jab would ever be so irresponsible as to self inflict that risk factor on themselves, or their patients, in good conscience .

  2. Meanwhile the Speaker has abandoned Johnsons regime and joined the Labor team after describing Johnsons government as irresponsible uncaring self interested contemptuous of the parliament and democracy and disrespectful to the people who he says the Johnsom government dont really care about at all..” Like ” all I want to see is that they dont really care about us ” sung by Michael Jackson ,after which his troubles all started .And he sang ,had the video made in South America.He wasnt just passing
