Listen: calls on young people to get boosted as the ultimate health kick

To date, 36 million boosters have been administered across the UK. In England, more than 90% of eligible over-70s, and 86% of eligible over-50s have had their top-up jabs.

However, some young people still have questions or concerns before they come forward. With around 54% of eligible 18- to 30-year-olds boosted and with Omicron continuing to spread, it is more important than ever for people to get their vaccinations to keep them and their loved ones safe.

In a new, motivational film released today, Miles and Julius from Made in Chelsea, guide the nation through the most important work out of their lives – getting boosted to top up immunity against COVID-19.

Ros spoke to Dr Emeka Okorocha.
