The Government are asking all those people who are entitled to the COVID Booster jab to get it now.
We reported two weeks ago how those living in Skegness, Boston, Grimsby, Grantham, and Scunthorpe were frustrated with the problems they faced in getting their booster jab. Many felt the Government were letting them down.
According to a spokesman for the Government, they are working on plans to reduce the problems people faced to get their booster jab.
