#AceDailyNews here’s todays Newspaper Headlines: A million jabs a day, as PM declares #Omicron ’emergency’ as the Sun says the booster rollout is going to be “turbo-charged”. It describes the prime minister’s TV address as sombre, as he warned: “There is a tidal wave of coming.” as cases rise and first death announced today….

Boris Johnson’s announcement on booster jabs makes the front of several papers, including the Telegraph. The paper says the government’s plan to ramp up booster jabs is aimed at avoiding another lockdown. To meet its target to offer a third jab to every adult by January, the NHS would have to offer jabs to 18 million people in 18 days, it says.

#CoronavirusNewsDesk GOVUK & #NHSALERT RAISED TO LEVEL 4 with ALL Nations in agreement with lATEST Urgent #Omicron appeal: Get boosted now as Prime Minister and NHS turbocharge booster programme against Omicron and launch an urgent national appeal calling for people to get jabbed according

The prime minister’s televised address, warning about rising cases of the #Omicron #COVID19 variant.

BBC News: Staff:

The Daily Mail describes it as a “hugely ambitious move” from Mr Johnson. The paper says the NHS’s website crashed within minutes of Mr Johnson’s statement as people tried to book jabs.

The Times also says the pledge is “unprecedented”, as it cites government sources who say it means the NHS needs to carry out about 15 million vaccinations over the next three weeks. Mr Johnson admitted that some NHS appointments and procedures would need to be cancelled, the paper adds. In a separate story, the paper says the cabinet secretary’s investigation into Downing Street parties will also cover the Christmas quiz on 15 December.

The Daily Mirror also mentions the Christmas parties, reporting that Labour has called on police to quiz the PM over the events. The paper’s focus is on the booster jabs, though, quoting Mr Johnson’s warning that the Omicron variant could lead to many deaths.

The Guardian also focuses on the prime minister’s promise that it says would mean offering one million jabs a day. The Army will be deployed across the country and doctors will be told to cancel appointments to help with the rollout, the paper says. The announcement comes as Mr Johnson prepares to face a “major test of his authority” this week as some Tory MPs are expected to rebel against the new Covid rules.

The i newspaper also leads with the jabs, reporting that the UK’s first hospital cases of Omicron have also been confirmed. Like many other papers, the i also features the nail-biting F1 world title race on its front page.

Boris Johnson described the wave of Covid cases heading for the UK an “Omicron emergency” – and the quote is featured in the headline for the Daily Express. The paper says Mr Johnson called for a “national mission” to get jabs into people’s arms.

The Metro newspaper applauds how the booster rollout is already going, saying more than 530,000 booster jabs were given in a single day in the UK on Sunday. It comes on the day the UK’s Covid alert level was raised to level four. The paper quotes the government’s Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi as saying: “It is now a race between the booster and that protection, and the Omicron variant.”

The Daily Star’s headline is less positive, suggesting that as well as climate change and the pandemic, the next thing to worry about is “deadly jackals heading our way”. The paper says experts are warning they are “one of the biggest threats to British livestock ever known”.

The top story for the Financial Times is on Ukraine, which has blamed Germany for blocking the supply of weapons through Nato. In an interview with the paper, Ukraine’s defence minister says Germany has vetoed the country’s purchase of anti-drone rifles and anti-sniper systems. Allies have been wary of supplying arms to Ukraine in case Russia sees it as a provocation, the FT says. Meanwhile, in a separate story the FT says the government has signed contracts which have the potential to extend the test-and-trace programme to 2025.

The Sun goes with the headline “Omigawd!”, while the Daily Express calls it an “emergency race for all to get boosters”.

The Daily Telegraph says the extension of the vaccine programme is aimed at avoiding a New Year lockdown.

The i, the Daily Mirror and the online-only Independent all focus on Boris Johnson’s warning that a “tidal wave” of Omicron cases is coming to the UK.

The Guardian, meanwhile, features an article written by an anonymous chief executive of an NHS trust. They warn that this winter will be much harder for the health service than last year because of the added pressures created by long waiting lists and staffing problems.

The Times reports that the cabinet secretary’s investigation into Whitehall Christmas parties last December will be extended to consider whether Boris Johnson personally broke the law by appearing at a Downing Street quiz.

It also says discussions are under way on whether to transfer responsibility for the probe to the prime minister’s adviser on ministerial standards, Lord Geidt.

The paper’s leader urges the head of the Civil Service, Simon Case, to delegate responsibility for the investigation to a “senior independent figure”, to ensure public trust in the government isn’t further undermined.

The Financial Times says ministers are preparing to extend the coronavirus test-and-trace programme until 2025.

The paper says the UK Health Security Agency has signed multi-million pound contracts with two companies to provide services for the scheme for the next 16 months – but both include options to extend the deals for a further two years. The contracts also suggest international travel restrictions could remain in place in some form for several years.

Many of the front pages feature images of Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, following the controversial conclusion of the Formula One season – which saw the young Dutch driver win the title after a disputed interpretation of safety car rules.

The Metro calls the events in Abu Dhabi “max-imum chaos”, the Daily Star says Hamilton was “pole-Maxed”, while the Daily Mail describes it as “Robbery at 200 miles an hour”.

The paper’s back page claims that Hamilton’s Mercedes team is preparing to take the matter to court, with discussions held with the high-profile sports lawyer Paul Harris after Sunday’s race.

The Mail’s chief sports writer, Martin Samuel, calls it a “stolen title”, accusing the sport’s bosses of sacrificing sporting integrity in pursuit of drama and the perfect ending for F1’s Netflix series.

Finally, the Times says a chocolate company has been forced to apologise to angry parents after deliberately leaving a window of its advent calendar empty.

The paper reports that Tony’s Chocolonely has been inundated with complaints on social media, after the window for the 8 December didn’t include chocolate, to raise awareness of global inequality.

The company has now said sorry for any “confusion and disappointment” the move caused – and pointed out that customers didn’t actually miss out because an extra treat was included on 9 December.
