Sign up to Jabs Army's festive Big Boost event at Wembley to get jabbed for Xmas as Omicron cases soar

THE Sun and The National ­Lottery have teamed up with the NHS to give readers the chance to get vaccinated with a festive twist.

There are 2,000 appointments up for grabs at The Big Boost, a Jabs Army event at SSE Wembley Arena in North London on Wednesday from 5pm to 10pm.


It’s not just jabs on offer — there will be live music and celeb appearances.

NHS England chief Amanda Pritchard said: “Turning a big bash into The Big Boost is the kind of adaptability and ingenuity that has made the NHS vaccine programme such a success.

"I’m so grateful to The Sun for putting on their event as part of the mission.

“Getting jabbed remains the best way to protect yourself and your family this Christmas.”

Readers smashed the 30,000 volunteer Jabs Army target last week in just three days, pledging to do shifts at more than 1,500 centres.

Sign up to join The Big Boost and book your vaccination at thesun.co.uk/bigboost.

Walk-ins will be allowed but priority is given to those who pre-book.
