Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show on Sunday (November 7) Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser at the UK Health Security Agency, has said while the Covid-19 booster rollout is going well, she is urging more people to come forward to get their top-up jabs.
She added that while the UK is now at the flattening of the peak, the country could still stay at a “very, very high level like this, which will mean that we have deaths that could be prevented by vaccination”.
