Why are the Government speeding up the booster rollout?
The discovery of another new variant, which has been deemed one of “concern”, has sparked the Prime Minister to enforce new methods of protecting the nation.
This includes reintroducing mandatory face masks in certain public settings.
There have been some concerns raised that the new variant may wane the effectiveness of certain vaccines, however so far there is no proof of this.
Mr Javid said: “We don’t yet have a full picture of how our vaccines respond to this new variant but although it is possible for them to be less effective it’s unlikely that they have no effect against serious disease.
“So the best way that we can strengthen our protective wall is to get as many jabs arms as possible.”
