The United Kingdom going through rapid increase in Omicron cases, has declared an “emergency” and decided to give booster doses for everyone above the age of 18 from this week.
“I’m afraid we’re now facing an emergency in our battle with the new variant Omicron. No one should be in any doubt, there is a tidal wave of Omicron coming.” said UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson .
“It is now clear that two doses of vaccine are simply not enough to give the level of protection we all need. But the good news is that our scientists are confident that with a third dose, a booster dose, we can all bring our level of protection back up.” he added.
