The rollout will carry on on Monday, following Christmas Eve appointments, with around 200,000 appointments for a third dose still available across the country over the festive period.

The health service said its "jingle jab" campaign will see NHS staff and volunteers administer doses at scores of local vaccination sites including town halls and local pharmacies.

NHS England advised booking in advance but said there will be options available for people without appointments across the country.

Dr Emily Lawson, head of the NHS Covid vaccination programme, said: "We've seen record after record broken in the run-up to the festive season and I want to thank every NHS staff member and volunteer whose goodwill and determination to protect their communities will keep the booster rollout going this Christmas weekend.

"This Christmas, before sitting down to your dinner with your family, I would encourage anyone not already boosted to come forward, book an appointment and get the gift of a jab."
