The Health Secretary is expected to lay out vaccination plans in full

What time is Matt Hancock’s announcement?

Mr Hancock is expected to address the nation at 5pm tonight (January, 11, 2021).

The Health Secretary will lead the press briefing from 10 Downing Street.

What will Matt Hancock say?

Mr Hancock confirmed on Sunday, January 10, that he will discuss the “full” plans of the vaccination programme in the briefing.

He said: “Since the historic day the first vaccine was approved, the NHS has made fantastic strides in offering the vaccine to as many at risk people as possible and at record pace.

“We have worked closely with experts across the NHS, local governments and the armed forces to put in place full and thorough preparations for this rollout – this is the biggest vaccination programme in British history.

“From today, the full scale of our plans will be published, so the public can be assured of the time, effort and resources that have gone and will go into ensuring we protect the British people from the scourge of this virus.”

There is also the possibility that he will discuss tougher restrictions.

Ministers are reportedly considering stricter rules – including a potential ban on exercising with one person outside of your household and having to wear face coverings in offices.

Boris Johnson held a meeting with Cabinet on January 10 to discuss whether the current rules are halting the spiralling infection rates.

In the last press briefing, the Prime Minister mentioned the vaccination plan.

He said they were “offering a slot for vaccination by 15th of February for everyone in those key groups identified by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation”.

Hancock will go into detail of how the 12 million prioritised in England – including older care home residents and staff, those aged 70 or over, and frontline NHS and care workers – will get vaccinated.

How can I watch the press conference?

As with previous press conferences, Boris Johnson’s speech will be available to watch on The Sun’s website.

It will also be on our YouTube page.
