UK – 10 Million people have received the first dose of the Covid19 vaccine
Ten million people in the U.K. have been given coronavirus vaccine, as the government’s program to immunize the most vulnerable groups makes rapid progress. “It’s fantastic that 10 million people in the U.K. have got their first dose of the vaccine,” “Thank you to everyone who has helped make this possible.” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a tweet.
The country is a month into its third national lockdown, and while death rates and hospitalization numbers have declined in recent days, medics are still battling high levels of infections
A total of 10,021,471 people have had a first jab and 498,962 have had two doses, according to government data up to the 2 February.
And figures from the start of the week show that nearly nine in 10 over-80s and half of over-70s have had their first jab.
