Surge testing and vaccinations will now be deployed in Bedford, Burnley, Hounslow, Kirklees, Leicester and North Tyneside.
There are now almost 3,000 cases of the Indian variant in the UK, the health secretary has told MPs.
Matt Hancock said 2,967 cases of the COVID-19 variant have now been recorded, having stood at more than 2,300 on Monday - a 28% increase.
As a result, surge testing and vaccinations will be deployed in Bedford, Burnley, Hounslow, Kirklees, Leicester, and North Tyneside.
Ministers are also supporting the Scottish government, which is taking similar steps in Glasgow and Moray, where First Minister Nicola Sturgeon delayed the easing of lockdown rules earlier this week.
"What this means in practice is we are putting in place more testing and more testing sites," Mr Hancock said.
