The amount of Covid booster shots given out in the UK is at an all-time high.

According to the National Health Service, the UK administered a record 325,140 COVID-19 booster doses on Saturday (NHS).

It claimed Sunday that over 800,000 vaccinations had been given out in the previous 72 hours.

Dr. Nikki Kanani, deputy leader of the NHS vaccine program, said, “It’s amazing to see so many coming forward to book in their essential immunization.”

“Getting your booster shot is critical and the greatest way to protect yourself and your family this winter.” The vaccine is safe and effective, so if you’re eligible, go online or call 119 to schedule your lifesaving booster today,” she said.

Booster vaccinations are available to around 10 million people in England, including health care workers, those with underlying health issues, and those aged 50 and up.

After at least six months and one week from an eligible person’s second jab, booster doses can be scheduled.

Meanwhile, Britain’s main opposition Labour Party has urged the government to execute Plan B, which imposes stricter limitations on the coronavirus.

“Labour has always said that we would follow the science, and we’ve seen today that SAGE is saying that some aspects of Plan B, such as wearing masks on public transportation and in shops and working from home more flexibly, should be introduced,” Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves told the BBC. SAGE is a government body that advises government decision-makers during emergencies.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak, however, has resisted Labour’s ideas, despite the fact that they have been echoed by health professionals.

“At this time, the evidence does not indicate that we should move to Plan B right now,” Sunak told the BBC. “The prime minister just indicated that we’re constantly looking at the statistics, as you’d expect us to.”

“We’re keeping an eye on things, but the data right now doesn’t indicate that we should switch to Plan B right away.” However, we will keep an eye on it, and the plans are in place.”

According to government data released on Sunday, there were 39,962 new cases in the UK in the last 24 hours, a tiny decline after days of growing cases. Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 8.7 million people have been infected. A further 72 people died, bringing the total number of people who have died since the outbreak began to 139,533.

Over to and including October 21, over 49.6 million first doses of vaccines, or 86.4 percent, and over 45.5 million second doses, or 79.2 percent, were given to Brits aged 12 and up.
