More than 34.5 million people in the UK have now received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. And if you want even more positive figures:
- We have administered a total of 50 million vaccine doses across the UK, including 15.5 million second doses. Including 95 per cent of those over 50 receiving at least one dose, with one in four adults having received their second dose.
- All adults over 50, the clinically vulnerable, and health and social care workers have been offered a life-saving jab – meaning we reached our target for offering a first dose to priority groups 1-9 ahead of schedule.
- We are now asking people over the age of 40 to come forward and get their jab. We remain on track to reach all adults by the end of July - around 53 million people.
Thanks to all those involved in the vaccination programme in the Brentwood and Ongar area - the NHS staff, the volunteers, the administrators and the scientists - for doing such a great job.
