No. 10 Downing Street

The Prime Minister held a COVID briefing on 15 November 2021

The speakers were:

  • Boris Johnson, Prime Minister
  • Professor Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer for England
  • Sir Patrick Vallance, Chief Scientific Adviser

Some points Boris Johnson made during the COVID briefing

…if we want to control the epidemic here in the UK and if we want to avoid new restrictions on our daily lives, we must all get vaccinated as soon as we are eligible.

…we are making boosters available to all those aged 40 to 49 from six months after their second dose.


But many more people who are eligible have not yet come forward. And so if you are one of those people, please go and get that third jab.

Booster jabs to be added to the NHS COVID App

In answer to a member of the public’s question, Boris Johnson said “I think we will be making plans to add the booster dose to the NHS COVID travel pass.”
