Vaccination Update

Today Britain passed a significant milestone in our national vaccination programme. We have achieved the target of administering a total of 15 million jabs into the arms of some of the most vulnerable people in the country. The number who have received both doses is now over 534,000.

  • Our world leading vaccination programme has been a truly UK-wide effort and we want to thank each and every person who has made it happen, and everyone who has signed up for a jab so far.
  • Tomorrow, the Prime Minister will set out in full the details of the progress made vaccinating the four most vulnerable groups, and has committed to setting out a roadmap on 22 February detailing how we will cautiously begin to start lifting restrictions.
  • There is still a long way to go and there will undoubtedly be bumps in the road, but after what we have achieved together we can go forward with confidence.

From tomorrow, NHS staff will begin vaccinating people aged 65 to 69 and those who are clinically vulnerable against Covid-19, giving those most at risk the protection they need as we continue to fight this disease together.

  • Britain's world-leading vaccination programme is continuing at an unprecedented speed and we need to keep up the momentum by expanding it even further.
  • That is why from tomorrow, the next phase of the vaccine programme will begin, as our NHS starts to vaccinate people aged 65 to 69 and those who are clinically vulnerable. Anyone aged 70 or over who has not yet done without some very good reason is strongly recommended to book an appointment online, contact their GP or dial 119 right away.
  • Vaccines are our way out of this pandemic, and accelerating the programme further will help us on our route back to normality.
