As a Government we pledged that by 19 July we’d have offered every adult a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and have given two doses to two thirds of all adults. It is the same date by when the next step of lifting the restrictions is planned, after a 4-week delay. This delay has allowed us to give 7 million extra doses across the UK. As restrictions are lifted, we are in a stronger position than ever before.
As of 14 July 2021, over 46 million people across the UK have now received their first dose of vaccination, accounting for 87.5% of the UK’s adult population. Over 35.3 million have received two doses of vaccination. 67.1% of all adults now have the maximum level of protection against the virus.
On 30 June 2021 the Government received the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation’s (JCVI) interim advice on a potential COVID-19 booster vaccination programme. It is important to note that this is an interim advice to inform planning and may substantially change before being finalised. The advice stated that those eligible for COVID-19 vaccination in Phase One of the vaccination programme are likely to be offered a booster (if boosters are indeed advised) with equal emphasis on deployment of the flu vaccine where eligible. Final decisions on the timing, scope and cohort eligibility of any COVID-19 vaccine booster programme will be confirmed once the JCVI have provided their final advice, alongside considerations related to COVID-19 vaccine supply and approvals by the MHRA.
Thanks to the fantastic efforts of our NHS and social care staff who work tirelessly every day, and our phenomenal vaccination programme, we have made enormous progress in the battle against this dreadful disease. I am grateful to everyone across Uxbridge and South Ruislip for taking up the vaccine and urge everyone to take up their second doses after at least 8 weeks of the first one to enjoy the maximum protection the vaccine can offer.
