UK govt plans to offer all adults boosters by end Jan.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed on Tuesday the government plans to offer all adult citizens a COVID-19 booster dose by the end of January in order to address concerns related to the newly registered Omicron coronavirus variant.

"The target that we have set ourselves is to offer a booster to everyone eligible by the end of January. As with the first jabs, we will be working through people by age group," Johnson said in a TV broadcast.

Commenting about other possible restrictions, Johnson noted that another lockdown is "unlikely," but that the government will keep "everything under review."
