UK Eyes Next Phase In Vaccine Rollout As 15 Million Get Jabs

UK Eyes Next Phase In Vaccine Rollout As 15 Million Get Jabs”

Government data showed the total receiving first vaccines doses was 15,062,189 and 537,715 second doses had also been administered.

Over 12 million people in England have now received jabs to protect against coronavirus and the government is expected to expand the criteria to start covering the most vulnerable within the over-65 age group.

Johnson had set the aim of offering a jab to everybody in the top four priority groups of around 15 million people by the end of this week.

The UK had begun its campaign to administer vaccines against the coronavirus on December 8 previous year.

Hancock said: "I am determined that we protect as many of our country's most vulnerable people from this very bad disease as soon as possible".

After becoming the first in the world to approve a vaccine, the British government set an ambitious target to reach care home residents and staff, frontline health and care workers, all those aged 70 or over and the clinically extremely vulnerable.

The UK is on track to offer the jab to all of the most vulnerable people by Monday, ministers have said.

In Northern Ireland, the Department of Health is offering everyone over 65 a vaccine by the end of February as it works its way through priority groups four and five, although it is expected to help the United Kingdom meet its overall target.

Only two COVID-19 vaccines, the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines produced in Europe, are approved for use in Canada and both companies have come up short in their recent shipments to the country.

"15,000,000! fantastic team", Nadim Zahawi tweeted, citing data compiled by the I news website using totals from each of the United Kingdom's four constituent countries.

"There is so much more to do and I urge anyone eligible to step forward and take up their appointment".

"We do need to be very careful in how we proceed", Raab said on Sky.

"The vaccine is our route to freedom - we will beat this virus jab by jab".

NHS chief executive Sir Simon Stevens said: "Hitting this milestone just 10 weeks after the NHS made history by delivering the first Covid vaccination outside of a clinical trial is a remarkable shared achievement".

He added "quantum leaps in science" had helped produce the Covid-19 vaccines needed to end the pandemic, and that world governments now had a responsibility to work together to distribute them.

"The provincial target of providing a first dose offer of vaccine to residents of all long-term care homes and high-risk retirement homes is arriving at completion", Hiller said.

"All restrictions remaining after 8 March should be proportionate to the ever-increasing number of people we have protected".
