20 million people fully vaccinated - an incredible achievement
Thanks to the monumental efforts of everyone involved, the UK vaccination programme continues to make incredible strides in delivering life-saving protection.
Britain has now administered more than 56 million vaccines across the UK, including over 20 million second doses - and remains on track to offer a vaccine to all adults by the end of July.
While the British people are responding incredibly to calls to get the vaccine, the work is not done yet, and everyone is urged to get their jab as soon as they are offered it. If you have any doubts or concerns, talk to your GP or an appropriately qualified medical professional.
