With 70,253,625 doses administered in totalLatest figures indicate that over 70 million coronavirus vaccines have now been administered to adults in the UK, as of 11 June, 41,088,485 people across the UK have now been vaccinated with a first dose (78 per cent), while 29,165,140 people have had both doses (55.4 per cent).

The NHS remains on track to offer a first dose to all adults by the end of July.

Data from Public Health England’s real-world study shows the vaccines are already having a significant impact in the UK, reducing hospitalisations and deaths, saving 14,000 lives and preventing 42,000 hospitalisations in England.

Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock said: “Our Covid-19 vaccination programme continues at an unparalleled pace and we are almost at the final lap of the race to offer a dose to all adults by the end of July. 70 million total doses is a phenomenal achievement and it’s truly heartening to think that this provides 70 million shots of protection and hope for a country that has battled so hard to keep Covid-19 under control over the past 18 months. The number of appointments booked over the past few days just goes to show how enthusiastic we are as a nation towards getting the vaccine – I urge all who are eligible to get their jab at the earliest possible opportunity.”
