The vaccination programme has now given 17.2 million brits a first dose and the PM has brought forward his pledge to innoculate every adult by months to July. Tourism chief Patricia Yates of Visit Britain said: “This is very welcome news in the pathway towards opening up and leading some sort of normal life. “The scientists have indicated that some social distancing will continue and we don’t know whether the vaccination will change that. “The end of social distancing would be hugely welcome, particularly for the smaller pubs and restaurants that have been really hard hit economically.”
Paul Charles of the PC Agency travel consultancy, who is spearheading the SOS – Save Our Summer – campaign, said: “We need to see a timetable for opening up the travel sector by May, domestically and overseas. “The PM has an opportunity on Monday to save half a million jobs and give positive outlook for travel.” Emma Coulthurst, of holiday price comparison site TravelSupermarket, said: “It’s given people hope that some form of safely-controlled overseas travel – through a mixture of vaccine certificates and testing - will be able to take place.” Jonathan Neame, chief executive of brewers Shepherd Neame – which owns 300 pubs in England – and chairman of Visit Kent, spoke of a good summer ahead and said: “I take my hat off to the Government for this incredible vaccine rollout." Mr Johnson said yesterday: “We will now aim to offer a jab to every adult by the end of July, helping us protect the most vulnerable sooner, and take further steps to ease some of the restrictions in place.”
