The comments made by Nadhim Zahawi, the Vaccines Minister, on 5 June 2021.
Our vaccination programme, the biggest and most successful in NHS history, has now delivered over 40 million first doses into arms – a fantastic achievement.
I am incredibly proud of everyone involved who have worked tirelessly to help us reach milestone after milestone. It is time to redouble our efforts on the second dose, to ensure everyone has maximum protection.
The offer is open to everyone over the age of 30, so when you get the call, get the jab. It could save your life and protect your loved ones.
