Vulnerable people and over-75s are set to receive their fourth covid jabs in the coming weeks as  is set to declare Thursday is Covid Freedom Day with all curbs – including legal self-isolation – to end in England.

It has been six months since many received their last jab in late 2021.

Future vaccinations will be organised in a similar way to the annual flu programme and will focus on the elderly and immunosuppressed people.

The Government will keep some Covid tracking systems so it can provide a quick response if a more dangerous variant develops.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will this week do away with all Covid curbs in England

The Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisations (JCVI) will make decisions about booster campaigns in future.

This week Boris Johnson will this week do away with the legal duty to self-isolate if you test positive or are in close contact with someone who has Covid.

The power to impose lockdowns will also shift to local authorities.

The PM will give an upbeat assessment as he unveils his ‘Living with Covid Plan’ tomorrow, insisting vaccines and PTS Terbaik ASEAN new treatments can be relied upon to keep the public safe.  

As cases continue to tumble – down 25 per cent week-on-week – Mr Johnson is also announcing a timetable to end free lateral flow and PCR tests which are costing the taxpayer £2billion a week. 

In a compromise between the Treasury and Department of Health, free tests are still likely to be available for more vulnerable and older age groups.

The Prime Minister said: ‘Covid will not suddenly disappear, and we need to learn to live with this virus and continue to protect ourselves without restricting our freedoms.
