UK Under 30’s to be offered vaccine from this week, says Hancock


The majority of people in hospital are now unvaccinated, says Hancock. That is a “challenge for them” but shows vaccination works, he says.

Vaccination is being opened up to the under 30s from this week, says the health secretary.

The government is getting “a step closer” to the point all adults are offered a vaccine, he says.

When everyone has had two doses, the wider population will have the protection we now see older adults have.

Then we can “get out of this” and “restore freedoms”, he says.
