What did Boris Johnson announce?

The Prime Minister said the UK had “made great strides” with the vaccination programme.

Boris Johnson welcomed the news as the World Health Organisation announced Oxford/AstraZeneca jab is effective in all adults – including over-65s.

It comes after The Sun revealed that justĀ one jab is likely to give two thirds protection against coronavirus,Ā vindicating ministers’ decision to give it to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.

In the first week of February,Ā No10 admitted they wanted to get all over 50s vaccinated by MayĀ – with aims to be nearly reaching everyone – when they have vowed to push ahead with holding local council elections.

Boris is outlined the latest vaccination hubs to open across the nation and promise more news the week after next when he outlines his plan for Britain to get back to normal and open up again.

The PMĀ has said he will reveal all on February 22, after assessing the data.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps poured cold water on any hopes of Brits having a summer holiday.

Speaking on Sky News, he explained: “The truth is we just donā€™t know how the virus will respondĀ to both to theĀ vaccinesĀ and of course how people will respond.

“Iā€™m afraid I canā€™t give you a definitive, will there or will there not be the opportunity to take holidays this next year either at home or abroad.”

Speaking on BBC Breakfast, Mr Shapps said travelling abroad would depend on “everybody having their vaccinationsā€ in the UK ā€“ and potentially abroad.

When asked ifĀ travel restrictionsĀ will stay in place until everyone has had a vaccine, he said: “Yes.”

Boris Johnson says ‘We’re going to have to get used to the idea of vaccinating and then re-vaccinating in the Autumn as we come to face these new variants’
