Boris Johnson reveals 2.4million Covid jabs given out as programme ramps up

BORIS Johnson has revealed today that 2.4million Covid jabs have been given out – as the programme massively ramps up this week.

It means around one million people have got the jab in the last week alone – and hundreds of thousands every day.

Boris Johnson said as he visited a vaccination centre in the South West today: “I think we’ve done 2 million people so far, or 2.4 million jabs.”

It means that 2 million have likely had at least one jab, and 400,000 got their top-up second vacine.

Matt Hancock said on Sunday the figure stood at around 2million.

It comes as seven super vaccination centres opened across Britain today – to fulfil the PM’s aim of doing 200,000 a day by Friday.

More will open in the coming days and weeks.

The PM visited one in Bristol to see how the rollout was working.

600,000 Brits who live less than a 45 minute drive away will be written to, asking them to book a slot.

The locations are:

  • Robertson House in Stevenage
  • ExCel Centre in London
  • Centre for Life in Newcastle
  • Etihad Tennis Centre in Manchester
  • Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey
  • Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol
  • Millennium Point in Birmingham

The PM has promised to inoculate 13.5 million people in just five weeks, and ministers are gearing up for a marathon task.

A fuller plan will be published at tonight’s press conference, which will be led by Matt Hancock.

He will also give an update on how and when everyone can expect to get vaccinated.
