Lockdown extended: Has the lockdown been extended in the UK? Pubs may stay shut until JULY

The vaccine has been hailed as a crucial pathway to ending restrictions and returning to normal life.

The Government’s target is to vaccinate the top four priority groups, which equates to 15 million people, by mid-February.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has said all adults in the UK will be offered the coronavirus vaccination by September.

Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show on January 17, he said: “The plan is to get the first 15 million most vulnerable people vaccinated with the first dose by the middle of February.

“We then want to get, by early spring, another 17 million.

“At that point, we’ll have 99 percent of those most at risk of dying of coronavirus administered their first jab, and then the entire adult population we want being offered a first jab by September. That’s the roadmap.”

According to the latest Government figures, 6.3m people have received the first dose of the vaccine, with an additional 469,000 having received the second dose as well.
