NHS delivers 1.6 million booster jabs in record week as total tops seven million

The NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme reported a record 1.6 million booster doses last week (Monday to Sunday) as the NHS booster campaign continues to protect the country against the virus.

More than seven million people across England have received their COVID-19 booster vaccine and since Friday, more than half a million people have booked in for their top-up jab.

In total, 7,022,871 boosters have been delivered in just over six weeks since the campaign was rolled out, 48 hours after being given the green light by the government – compared to 5.5 million first doses at this point as part of the initial roll out.

Hundreds of walk-in sites are now also administering crucial booster vaccines across the country, making it easier than ever for those eligible to get their jab. People eligible for their booster can use the NHS online walk-in finder to find the most convenient site to get their top-up without an appointment.
