Walk-in vaccination clinics opened up across the country as the Covid-19 booster jab roll-out continued at speed .

The NHS will need to exceed 840,000 booster jabs per day in a bid to fight Omicron, which is causing around 200,000 new infections per day, the Health Secretary Sajid Javid has said.

The prime minister announced that all eligible adults will be offered a Covid-19 booster jab by the end of the year in England, in a bid to protect against the Omicron variant.

Boris Johnson has announced an ambitious booster vaccination plan
