It comes after the government confirmed yesterday that it had met its target to offer a COVID-19 vaccine to all those aged over 50 and clinically vulnerable by the middle of April.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:

“We have now passed another hugely significant milestone in our vaccine programme by offering jabs to everyone in the nine highest risk groups.

“That means more than 32 million people have been given the precious protection vaccines provide against Covid-19.

“I want to thank everyone involved in the vaccine rollout which has already saved many thousands of lives.

“We will now move forward with completing essential second doses and making progress towards our target of offering all adults a vaccine by the end of July.”
