Vaccination update

40,496,685 doses of approved COVID-19 vaccines have now been administered in the United Kingdom.

388,808 doses in the latest 24hr period.

32,326,604 people have received at least one dose, of whom 8,170,081 have had both jabs and are now fully vaccinated.









On Monday, Britain reached our target to vaccinate the most vulnerable by the 15th of April - meaning that we can now begin to vaccinate those aged over 45 as we continue to progress towards our target of offering all adults across the UK a vaccine by the end of July.

  • We have met our target to vaccinate the most vulnerable by the 15th of April, meaning that all those in the target groups 1-9  have now been offered a life-saving Covid-19 jab, more than 40 million of which have been given in total.
     
  • That is why, in line with JCVI recommendations to vaccinate people by age, invitations to receive a vaccine should be sent to all those aged over 45. If you are over 45 you do not have to wait to get a letter: ring 119 between 7am and 11pm on any day of the week or go on the vaccination booking website.
     
  • Prioritising those at increased risk from the virus will ensure that we save the most lives as we continue to progress towards our target of offering all adults across the UK a vaccine by the end of July.
     
  • Following a successful start last week in Wales, the Moderna vaccine is now being rolled-out in England as of yesterday, meaning the UK now has three safe and effective vaccines being rolled out across the country.
