Boris' Covid booster jab campaign has been mocked for resembling a Wilko knock-off.

Boris Johnson's Covid booster jab campaign has been mocked on social media for resembling Wilko's hardware store.

In a special pre-recorded TV address to the nation on Sunday night, Prime Minister David Cameron warned that the UK "is now facing an emergency" in the fight against the Omicron variant.

He urged every adult to get the Covid vaccine booster shots as soon as possible as part of an "Emergency Omicron Boost."

Everyone over the age of 18 will be offered a booster shot before New Year's Day as part of this effort, bringing the previous deadline of the end of January 2022 forward by a month.

"No one should be in any doubt: there is a tidal wave of Omicron coming, and I'm afraid it is now clear that two doses of vaccine are simply not enough to give the level of protection we all need," Johnson said in a message directly from Downing Street.

The government also unveiled a new slogan, "Get Boosted Now," in conjunction with the announcement.

Users on Twitter, on the other hand, have quickly mocked the design, with one comparing it to Wilko's.

"No mystery where the government got its design inspiration for its booster message at the end of Boris Johnson's speech just now," the tweet read.

Another Twitter user made a comparison to Cadbury chocolate Boost, stating simply, "Get boosted now."

"The Christmas present nobody wanted," a third tweeted, along with a meme featuring the Turbo Man Booster toy.
