Plan B put to vote in UK as Omicron spreads and booster rush continues – BBC News

More than half a million people booked their Covid booster jabs on Monday – despite the NHS website crashing as thousands sought top-up doses.

Boris Johnson revealed the figure a day after pledging that boosters would be offered to all over-18s by 31 December.

Long queues formed at walk-in vaccination sites on Monday, with some people waiting five hours to get jabs.

The PM and the NHS are now appealing for volunteers to help get jabs into arms and run vaccination centres.

It comes as Boris Johnson is set to face his biggest backbench rebellion since the 2019 general election as MPs will vote on new Covid rules for England later.
