Get jabbed on vaccine ‘Super Saturday’, young Londoners told – as Covid cases soar among 20-24-year-olds

oung Londoners were today urged to get jabbed on a vaccination “Super Saturday” as confirmed Covid-19 cases soar among 20 to 24-year-olds in some boroughs.

NHS London said the landmark of eight million jabs – first and second doses – had also been hit in the capital on Friday.

Prof Fenton told The Standard: “Our collective mission over the coming weeks is clear – we must keep case rates down as we further expand the vaccination roll-out.”

However, he also warned: “Case rates are on the increase across the city, with sharp rises among the 20-24 age group in some areas.

“We need young Londoners everywhere to help get us over the line by getting jabbed, getting tested and following the basics of Hands, Face, Space and Fresh Air at all times.”

The capital currently lags behind other regions in the jabs roll-out, leaving it more vulnerable to a surge in cases.

Only about 8,000 of the 15,000 vaccine appointments available at the Olympic stadium had been reserved by last night, the Standard understands – prompting the Mayor to urge Londoners not to miss the chance of a life-saving jab.
