One of our top stories in สมัครสมาชิกสล็อต the UK today is following comments from
the government's vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi.

He told the Daily Telegraph that people in the top four priority groups of the vaccine
rollout could start receiving Covid booster jabs from September.

That includes the over-70s, staff working in health and social care, and people
considered clinically vulnerable.

The idea is that the booster jab would protect them from new variants. Scientists
believe that current vaccines could be less effective against some new variants -
although experts say jabs can be easily adapted.

Revealing details of the plan to the Telegraph, Mr Zahawi said the "most likely date"
for booster jabs to begin would be September.

He said deputy chief medical officer Jonathan Van-Tam thought "that if we are going
to see a requirement for a booster jab to protect the most vulnerable, [it] would be
around September".
