LONDON: Britain announced Sunday that it has given more than 20 million people at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, with the rapid rollout providing hope in a country with Europe’s highest death toll.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock made the announcement in a video on Twitter, saying: “I’m absolutely delighted that over 20 million people have now been vaccinated.”
In mid-February, the UK met a government target of 15 million of the most vulnerable people receiving first doses.
The government says it plans to offer a first jab to the whole adult population by the end of July.
Only Israel and the United Arab Emirates have vaccinated more people per head of population.
Smiling, Hancock said “I want to thank every single person who has come forward to get the jab,” calling this “the route out of this for all of us.”
“There’s a long way to go but we’re making big strides,” he said. | YouTube Channel
