More than 50 million corona pricks have been placed in the UK since the vaccination campaign began in early December. The government reports that more than a quarter of the adult population has been fully vaccinated.
Some 34 million people have had their first vaccination, 15 million have also received their second dose.
This, according to the government, has already had a “significant impact” on the United Kingdom, which was previously badly hit by the pandemic. The number of positive tests and deaths from Covid-19 has declined exponentially this year.
The government wants to offer all adults a corona vaccine at the end of July. According to the Secretary of Health, Matt Hancock, it looks like this is going to work. Vaccination Minister Nadhim Zahawi calls the vaccination program a great success so far.
Like his colleague, Zahawi points out that the work is not over yet. “Every shot brings us one step closer to ending this pandemic,” he emphasizes. Both ministers ask the British to get vaccinated as soon as they are invited.
