Proceed with caution

Yesterday, the Prime Minister urged people to proceed with caution as restrictions are eased and we continue on our cautious but irreversible roadmap to freedom - and remember hands, face, space and fresh air.

  • Thanks to the sacrifices of people across the nation, the success of our vaccine programme and falling infection rates, yesterday we were able to take one small step to freedom with millions of people meeting up with loved ones outdoors - but as we continue along our roadmap, we must proceed with caution and continue to build the immunity of our population.
     
  • For many, April will be the ‘Second Dose Month’ and everybody is encouraged to take up their appointment when their turn comes as we push forwards with our efforts to offer a vaccination to all adults by the end of July.
     
  • As part of our fight against this virus, Britain is also building up our long-term UK manufacturing capabilities, and yesterday it was announced that GlaxoSmithKline will be carrying out the final stage of the manufacturing process for the Covid vaccine in the North East, giving us 50 to 60 million doses of UK made vaccine subject to approvals of the MHRA.
     
  • Whilst the government encourages everyone to have fun and get outdoors in the good weather, it is vital we continue to remember to wash our hands, cover our face, give people space and only meet others in the fresh air.
