People queue for booster jabs as rollout is extended in the UK

With the UK’s Covid alert raised to 4 due to an incoming “tidal wave of Omicron”, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has ramped up the booster vaccination programme.

Panic to book a booster has lead to the NHS website crashing and national shortages of lateral flow tests.
