More than 20 million in UK vaccinated with at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine
Health Secretary Matt Hancock posted a video on his Twitter account describing the milestone as a “magnificent achievement” for the country.
“I am absolutely delighted that over 20 million people have now been vaccinated across the UK. It’s absolutely fantastic. Huge thanks to the team, but, in particular, I want to thank every single person who’s come forward to get the jab,” Hancock said.
“We know, with increasing confidence, the jab protects you, it protects your community and, also, it is the route out of this for all of us. So, a great, great well done to the team.”
Hancock, however, acknowledged there was “a long way still to go” but insisted that they were making strides in the fight against the pandemic.
