COVID-19 Vaccine Update
2.4 million vaccines have been administered in the UK so far
We are now administering 200,000 doses a day, and over a third of over-80s have received a jab
We have vaccinated more people than any other country in Europe
We are the sixth country in the world for vaccinations per capita
7 mass vaccination centres have opened their doors across England
Today the Government will publish the Covid-19 UK Vaccines Delivery Plan, setting out the plan to deliver the biggest vaccination programme in British history, to protect all those who need it most as quickly as possible.
The delivery of a safe, effective vaccine is the best way to protect the most vulnerable and save thousands of lives and the Government are fully prepared to deliver this vaccine over the weeks and months ahead.
That is why later today the Vaccines Delivery Plan will be published, which will set out the ambitions for the coming weeks and months to continue to expand the programme at breakneck speed, and outlines the time, effort and resources that have gone and will go into ensuring people are protected from the scourge of this virus.
This battle plan will be the keystone of our exit out of the pandemic, but only if we all continue to play our part by staying at home, following the rules and keeping hands, face, space at the forefront of our minds when out and about.
