The prime minister is set to make a number of announcements about the government’s plan to combat the possible increase in the Covid 19 during the winter.
Boris Johnson is expected to outline some measures that will help the British public stop the spread of the corona virus at a time of year when the flu is on the rise.
No. 10 said another lockdown in the winter would be considered a “last resort”.
Meanwhile, four of Britain’s chief medical officers said on Monday that children between the ages of 12 and 15. The first dose of Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine should be given. Reducing potential transmission in schools.
Here are three specific announcements that the Prime Minister will make later.
The government has said it will continue to use the vaccine as a front-line defense against the spread of Covid 19 in the fall and winter.
As of September 9, around 90 per cent of the UK population has received the first dose of the covid vaccine over the age of 16, and more than 80 per cent have received both doses.
Boris Johnson is expected to elaborate on the Covid 19 booster program for those who may be weakening the immune system against the virus.
It is expected that more than 50s will be exposed to the third shock – starting in the 70s and very weak.
The Pfizer / Biotech vaccine shot will be given at least six months after the second dose as the protection given to the elderly amid concerns is lost over time.
The Independent Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization recommended that the booster vaccine be delivered to the most vulnerable people from September 2021, in order to offer increased levels of protection in the winter.
And the government confirmed last week that those who lack the immune system will be offered a third basic dose – this is separate from the booster program, because those who need a third basic dose get insufficient protection from two doses. Is.
The traffic light system is expected to be phased out and PCR tests will no longer be required for fully vaccinated passengers.
However, travelers who have either been partially vaccinated or have not been vaccinated at all will still need to take a PCR test before traveling abroad.

Vaccine passports are also expected to expire for large crowds and locations.
Health Secretary Sajid Javed said on Sunday that the vaccine passports were a “huge interference in people’s lives” and that there were no current plans to move forward with them.
However, Ms Kofi said the introduction of a vaccine passport was not ruled out forever.
Mr Johnson said he also wanted to avoid passports – but never refused to introduce them.
“All we want to do is avoid vaccine passports, if we can,” he said.
“It’s the course we’re on, but I think you have to be careful and keep things safe if things change.”
With many previous restrictions lifted, it is unlikely that the government will impose any kind of lockdown during the fall and winter.
Asked if ministers would consider a winter lockdown if the Cowade 19 case escalates, an official spokesman for the prime minister told reporters: “We are in a very different place from where we were when the second lockdown was introduced. Thanks to the success of our vaccine program and other things like coronavirus treatment.
“We never consider such measures a last resort, and we will explain in more detail tomorrow what our position would be if we saw a significant increase in our affairs.”
Boris Johnson was sharply critical of whether he would reject the winter lockdown before announcing changes to the Quaid rules on Tuesday.
Addressing a visit to Leicester on Monday, he said: “We must do everything possible to protect the country.
“But the way things are going right now, we have a lot of confidence in the steps we have taken.”
