PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Prime Minster Boris Johnson has vowed to 'speed up' the Covid vaccination rollout - with all adults offered a jab in Britain by July. More than 17 million people have already had a potentially lifesaving vaccine, including two thirds of the 65 to 69 age group. But Mr Johnson wants the vaccine programme to go "further and faster in the coming weeks" and has set a bold new target where 52.8 million UK adults will be offered a jab by July 31. It would mean the Government is operating two months ahead of schedule, the Mirror report. The PM will set a roadmap out of the third national lockdown when he gives an important announcement at 7pm tomorrow, Monday, February 22.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the Government believed it had the vaccine supplies to meet the new target of offering all adults a jab by the end of July. “We now think that we have the supplies to be able to do that, we can see the NHS and all of those partners and all of those working on this have been able to deliver jabs at about half-a-million a day, which is an incredible effort,” he told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge on Sunday.

He told BBC Breakfast: “The capacity we’ve got now does need to expand further to achieve this goal, but it does appear that there’s an abundance of resources. “There’s certainly no shortage of people willing to come forward and help support the efforts so, provided the vaccines can come through, then we can go faster, I think, yes.”
