Got my second jab today.  Strange side effect as my skin is itching all over. Anyway I booked a flight from Belfast to London.  Do I need to take a covid test before I can fly?  Can't find any information on google about N Ireland passengers travelling to England.  It says overseas passengers have to take a covid test, but does that include passengers inside the UK flying to and from N. Ireland?

I don't know but would assume, as it would be an internal UK flight it would be treated like a car journey from Edinburgh to London and no tests required ? The fact you are using a flight should make no difference.

Thanks.  Wasn't sure because many people here hold a British and EU Irish passport.  Wasn't sure if there was one rule for Irish passport holders and another for British, especially as there is now an official or unofficial Irish sea border.

Schools are not "drivers" or "hubs" of Covid infection, Public Health England's medical director has said.

Dr Yvonne Doyle said she understood parents' nervousness about schools returning after the summer in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

She stressed that lots of measures to cut Covid spread remained in place.

But Prof Calum Semple, a government scientific adviser, said with most adults vaccinated, schools were likely to be a "greater part of the problem".

Some have suggested a surge in cases in Scotland, where pupils returned in August, could be linked to schools.

We have the same problem as the US now.

It's a "pandemic of the unvaccinated".

Four in five people aged 16 and over in the UK have now received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine - as Health Secretary Sajid Javid hailed it as a "phenomenal achievement". Also, the country has recorded 209 more coronavirus-related deaths and 37,489 new infections in the latest 24-hour period.

30,825 new cases and 61 new deaths

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/uk/

 

A UK-wide programme of booster jabs to help prevent Covid will be confirmed on Tuesday, the BBC understands.

Ministers are expected to announce jabs for the over-50s as part of their Covid Winter Plan, after advice from the independent vaccine panel, the JCVI.

BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said the booster would be a single dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months after a second dose.

It's official, then!  We now have twice the number of new cases every day, compared to the same date one year ago.

Imagine what would've happened if they hadn't rushed out the vaccines!  The NHS would be in big trouble.
