Social media sites launch features to encourage users to get boosters



acebook, Instagram and TikTok are launching new features to encourage people to get their coronavirus booster shots.

Starting Friday, users will be able to update their profile with frames or stickers to show that they have received their top-up or are aiming to do so when they become eligible.

This follows the fact that people could previously show that they had had their first and second jabs on certain websites and social media apps.

TikTok also hosted a ‘grab a jab’ event in London earlier this year.

I urge all who are eligible – don’t delay, get vaccinated or refuel today to protect yourself and your loved ones

People aged 40 and over who received their second dose of vaccine at least six months ago are currently eligible for their booster.

“I urge all who are eligible – don’t delay, get vaccinated or have a complementary injection today to protect yourself and your loved ones.”
