UK administers 2 million COVID-19 vaccines, with aim of 14 million by February

Britain has now given around 2 million people a COVID-19 vaccination, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said, ahead of a ramp-up in the roll-out of the shots on Monday.

“Over the last week we’ve vaccinated more people than in the entirety of December, so we’re accelerating the roll-out,” he told BBC TV.

Asked how many people had been vaccinated, Mr Hancock said: “It’s around the 2 million mark, but we’re going to publish the exact figures tomorrow and then henceforth on a daily basis.”

Britain is aiming to vaccinate around 14 million people by the middle of February, comprising of people over 70-years-old, the clinically vulnerable or with pre-existing conditions, and health and social-care workers.
