This weekend brings to a total the number of vaccines administered in England to over 60 million in what has become one of the biggest and most important efforts in our nations history. Conor said "I really want to congratulate and thank all those who have made this possible, it has been a fantastic achievement, and I want to urge everyone to take up their appointment for a vaccination when they are contacted".
Getting vaccinated is the most important step we can take to protect ourselves, our families and our communities against Covid-19. Our trailblazing vaccination programme - the biggest and most successful in NHS history - is another great British success story and a testament to what can be achieved when all four corners of country comes together to defeat this virus.
This comes alongside new evidence from Public Health England that showed that two doses of the COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at protecting people against the variant of Covid-19 first identified in India.
The vaccine is saving thousands of lives and provides invaluable protection from this virus, so when you get the offer please come forward for the jab.
