Danny Altmann, professor of immunology at Imperial College London, said he was concerned about the Indian variant.
Speaking on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, he said: “At the moment, we are still vulnerable, and some people in our population are still vulnerable.
“What I mean by that is the Indian variant, for example, certainly has a mutation like the ones that evade the best neutralising antibodies.
“If you have a population where at least half of us have had zero or one dose of vaccine, some won’t have made a very good response to the vaccine, because perhaps they are very old or obese or unwell, we still have a very large vulnerable population who can still be caught out by variants like this.”
