One in five adults has first vaccine dose in UK


Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the UK remained on track to complete the vaccination of the top four priority groups – 15 million people – by 15 February, with one in five of all adults now having received a jab.

469,016 people had a first vaccine dose yesterday, taking the UK total of initial inoculations to 10,490,487.

This is equivalent to 19.9% – or one in five – of the UK’s adult population.

Also, more than 500,000 people have now received a second jab.
