The comments made by Nadhim Zahawi, the Vaccines Minister, on 17 May 2021.
20 million people have received the strongest protection from this virus – another incredible milestone.
It is inspiring to see the incredible public response to our call to arms to get the jab. We have one of the highest vaccine uptake rates in the world, but our work is not done yet.
It’s time to redouble our efforts on the second dose, so please come forward for the second jab as it could be a life-saving extra boost of protection.
