A masked-up Boris Johnson has been pictured posing for selfies during a visit to Wood Green this morning.
The prime minister - pictured wearing a mask on the day new rules were introduced to combat the Omicron variant - watched patients at the Lordship Lane Primary Care Centre receive their Covid-19 booster vaccines today (November 30).
Mr Johnson handed out "reward stickers" to those who had been given their extra vaccination at the Whittington Hospital clinic and elbow bumped staff and patients, rather than shaking hands.
In the past, the prime minister has been criticised for failing to wear a mask, including on a visit to Hexham Hospital. He has since apologised.
His Wood Green visit coincided with the introduction of new restrictions in England, including face coverings again becoming compulsory in shops and settings such as banks, post offices, hairdressers and public transport.
The tightened rules were triggered by a number of cases of the new Omicron Covid-19 variant, one of which was detected in Camden.
