United Kingdom prepares 'delivery plan' for the biggest vaccination drive in British history

As Britain gears up to rush out its largest vaccination programme with shots offered to more than 15 million people by mid-February, Johnson said, "It's a race against time because we can all see the threat that our NHS faces, the pressure it's under, the demand in intensive care units, the pressure on ventilated beds, even the shortage of oxygen in some places".

The government plans to have administered a first Covid-19 vaccination dose to everyone in the most vulnerable groups by the middle of February, before expanding the programme so that all adults can be inoculated by the autumn.

This would account for nearly half of the priority groups in phase one, with all 9 high-risk groups for phase one of the programme being vaccinated by spring.

Normal life will return after the novel coronavirus pandemic but it is some way away and will depend on people sticking to lockdown rules and the mass rollout of the vaccines, the British government's chief medical adviser said on Monday.

By the end of January, everyone in England will be within 10 miles of a vaccination site or, for a small number of highly rural areas, the vaccine will be brought to them via mobile teams. What is Phase 2 of the vaccine delivery plan?

It's taken a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication to make such an incredible start to this ambitious deployment programme. Ali Webster, PhD, RD, and director of research and nutrition communications at the International Food Information Council, says it's still too soon to determine whether or not the vitamin could help lower your risk of experiencing adverse COVID-19 symptoms."There are plausible biological mechanisms for it doing so, and low levels of B6 in the body are associated with a weakened immune system", she says. The figure has risen by more than 40 percent since the start of the year.

This historic vaccination programme is a truly national effort and shows the whole of the United Kingdom coming together to quickly and effectively protect the British public against this bad virus. This is the greatest logistical challenge of our time and we must all play our part.

Tens of millions of people will be immunised against Covid-19 by the spring, according to latest Government documents. Last week, the MHRA also approved a third vaccine by Moderna.

In Scotland, the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab is now available in more than 1,000 locations.

The warnings come as Mr Hancock is due to set out the Government's vaccines delivery plan - hailing it as the "keystone of our exit out of the pandemic".

We have worked at unprecedented pace and scale to ensure Britain receives vaccines that meet strict safety standards as quickly as possible.

Thousands more people are expected to be given a vaccine soon, with the opening of seven mass vaccination sites across England on Monday.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Prof Whitty said: "I don't think we're yet at the peak, I'm afraid".

There are already nearly 1,000 vaccination sites across the country.
