All in all, Johnson’s visit to Milton Keynes was as awkward as it looked especially when he spoke to members of the public getting their booster jab and continued to loom over them while they were getting vaccinated.
Elsewhere, Johnson urged people to think about the risk they are running with their own health if they fail to get a booster jab.
He told reporters: “We’re looking at the data and what we’re seeing is that we’ve got cases certainly going up, we’ve got a lot of cases of Omicron.
“But, on the other hand, we can see the data about the relative mildness of Omicron. What we can also see is the very, very clear effect of getting those jabs, getting those boosters in particular – and that’s what’s making a huge difference.
“According to some of the surveys I’ve seen, 90% of the patients in ICU are people who are not boosted. So, think about that. Think about the risk you’re running with your own health if you fail to get a booster.”
