Sajid Javid on Monday extended to all Britons over 18 the possibility to book their coronavirus booster jab as the UK takes additional precautions to avoid the Omicron variant of Covid sparking a new wave. Sky News reporter Jon Craig discussed the recent change of rules for booking the booster vaccination before admitting he himself had gotten the jab on Monday afternoon. Mr Craig then shared footage of the aftermath of his latest interview with the Health Secretary showing Mr Sajid had personally walked him to get jabbed.
In the video, the Health Secretary can be seen asking the Sky News reporter whether he got the booster already.
Mr Craig explained he had yet to book it because of only getting the second dose in June – meaning under old rules he would have had to wait until December to get the booster dose.
But Mr Sajid pointed out the change of the rules, which shortened the waiting period from six to three months, meant he could get his additional jab right away.
The Health Secretary said: “I’ll walk you in.”
