People in England will be able to get a Covid booster jab on Christmas Day and Boxing Day as part of efforts to target the Omicron variant, the NHS has said.

Vaccinations will also take place on Christmas Eve, with about 200,000 first, second or booster appointments still bookable over the festive period.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid thanked NHS staff and volunteers who were giving up time with family and friends.
Officials will also be working to fix supply chain delays with home tests.
The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) said it was sending a record number of rapid lateral flow tests to people’s homes every day but acknowledged there is an issue with deliveries to some pharmacies.
NHS England said its “jingle jab” campaign will see Covid vaccines administered at local sites such as town halls and pharmacies over the Christmas weekend.
It advised people to book an appointment in advance but said they would be able to turn up at centres in some areas, including Eastbourne, Hartlepool, Croydon and Dewsbury.
Dr Emily Lawson, head of the NHS Covid vaccination programme, said she would “encourage anyone not already boosted to come forward, book an appointment and get the gift of a jab”.
She said: “We’ve seen record after record broken in the run-up to the festive season and I want to thank every NHS staff member and volunteer whose goodwill and determination to protect their communities will keep the booster rollout going this Christmas weekend.”
The UK set another daily Covid record on Thursday with 119,789 confirmed cases. There were a further 147 deaths within 28 days of a positive test.
It has also been a record-breaking week for booster and third jabs in the UK, with more than 968,665 administered on Wednesday, the highest number to date.
