All British adults to be offered vaccination against COVID-19 by the end of July

Today, the Prime Minister has announced the ambition to offer a coronavirus vaccine to every adult in the country by the end of July – as Britain's vaccine rollout continues to save lives and allow us to cautiously move closer to returning to normality. 

  • With the UK vaccination programme already hitting significant milestones and beating initial targets – with a third of adults having received a vaccine – we all now want to see the roll-out go further and faster in the coming weeks.   
  • The Prime Minister has therefore announced plans to bring forward initial targets by aiming to offer a vaccine to every adult by the end of July, as well as vulnerable people in categories 1-9 and those over 50 by 15 April. 
  • These new ambitions will help protect the most vulnerable sooner and take us closer to easing restrictions – but we must remain vigilant, and tomorrow the Prime Minister will set out a cautious and phased approach to the easing of restrictions.
