Sajid Javid – 2021 Comments on the Third Vaccine

The comments made by Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, on 24 August 2021.

Vaccines have built a strong wall of defence in the UK and this is allowing most of us to learn to live safely with COVID-19.

We know some people may get less protection from the vaccine than others, so we are planning for a booster programme in the Autumn, prioritising those most at risk.

This new study will play an important role in helping to shape the deployment of future vaccines doses for these specific at-risk groups.
