Boris Johnson’s press conference: Brits will need a booster shot to travel abroad, according to the Prime Minister.

Boris Johnson hinted today that BRITS will need a booster shot to travel abroad in the future.

The Prime Minister stated that plans are in the works to include a third vaccine in the Covid travel pass, which allows people to travel abroad.

At today’s press conference, he stated that becoming “fully vaccinated” will most likely entail three injections.

Boosters are currently only available to those in their 50s and those who are the most vulnerable, but they will soon be extended to those in their 40s.

“I believe that we will be making plans to add the booster to the NHS Covid travel pass,” Mr Johnson said today.

“But, again, I think the general lesson is that, if anyone wants to travel, getting fully vaccinated with a booster will – on the whole – make your life easier in a variety of ways, including for foreign travel.”

“So, if you’re thinking about it, this is yet another reason to do it.”

The Prime Minister said in a press conference this afternoon:

Today, Prime Minister David Cameron urged British citizens to get their coronavirus boosters as soon as they are eligible.

Earlier today, it was announced that Covid vaccines would be made available to people over the age of 40 in order to prevent a winter outbreak of the bug.

“If we want to control the epidemic in the UK, we all need to get vaccinated as soon as we are eligible,” Mr Johnson said in a speech to the nation this afternoon.

“Six months after their first dose, we’re making second jabs available for 16-17 year olds and boosters available for all those 40-49.”

“Over time, the protection provided by the first two jabs begins to wane, but the third jab increases protection to 90%.

“There are many more people who are eligible who have yet to come forward; if you are one of them, please go get that third jab.”

“It would be tragic if people who did the right thing and got double vaccinated became seriously ill or died as a result of failing to get their booster.”

Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Health, confirmed last week that ministers will consider expanding the definition of fully vaccinated to include booster shots.

Because the vaccine’s effectiveness has waned over time, the change may be necessary “in due course,” according to the Health Secretary.

“We’ll have to look at what constitutes vaccination in due course,” he said.

It’s something we need to keep an eye on.”
