Over-30s ‘to be vaccinated by April’ as tens of millions of doses land in UK


Over-30s could be on track to receive Covid vaccines in April as tens of millions of doses arrive on UK soil. 

The country will see a ‘rapid increase’ in supply in the second half of March, Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi has revealed. 

England alone is set to administer four million jabs a week after UK vaccinations fell to just over two million every seven days. 

Speaking to the Women and Equalities House of Commons Committee, Mr Zahawi said until now ‘supply has been finite’ but the situation is about to ‘get easier’.

‘The whole country will see a rapid increase in the number of people getting their first dose and getting protected whilst obviously we do second dosing at the same time.’
