Four in five people in the UK aged 16 and over are now fully vaccinated against Covid-19, according to the latest UK government figures. A total of 43,535,098 second doses have now been delivered since the rollout began nine months ago – the equivalent of 80.1% of all people aged 16 and over. Health Secretary Sajid Javid calls it a “phenomenal achievement” as the vaccine has “built a wall of defence around the UK” and is “allowing us to live safely with this virus”.
