It comes as the Government has been urged to ‘get on’ with a coronavirus booster programme rather than waiting for advice from vaccine experts.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson appeared to confirm that a rollout will begin this month, saying older people are the priority as autumn and winter approach.

But the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) is yet to provide a recommendation on boosters, with a final decision still to be made.

Pressure is also mounting for a decision on jabbing 12 to 15-year-olds, something the JCVI has also not yet recommended.

The latest Government figures show that as of September 1, 72 per cent of the total UK population had received one dose of a coronavirus vaccine.

According to separate figures compiled by Our World in Data, this would place the UK behind countries including the UAE, Spain and Ireland.

Figures from Public Health England show the majority of people in hospital with Covid are under the age of 50 and 73 per cent of those are unvaccinated.

The figures, largely unchanged from a fortnight ago, also show that 64 per cent of people aged under 50 who died with Covid had not had a jab.

Meanwhile nearly 500 people have been arrested and 81 activists have been removed after gluing themselves to structures in the latest fortnight of XR protests.

The Metropolitan Police said there had been a total of 480 arrests in the capital since the environmental group began its ‘Impossible Rebellion’ on August 23.

The protests have seen activists scaling the seven-storey Tower Place West building in the City, occupying both London Bridge and Tower Bridge and blocking roads.

Police have defended themselves after being accused of heavy-handed tactics, with officers seen using batons and dragging protesters from a bus near London Bridge.
