We are delighted that over 2.2 million of the most vulnerable people in the country have now received the first dose of their COVID-19 vaccine.

We are on track to deliver our commitment of offering a first vaccine to everyone in the most vulnerable groups by the middle of next month.

There are already more than 2,700 sites across the United Kingdom already offering vaccines to those at risk by age and clinical priority.

As set out in the comprehensive UK vaccines delivery plan, by the end of January, everyone in England will be within 10 miles of a vaccination site, or, for a small number of highly rural areas, the vaccine will be brought to them via mobile teams.
