Almost half UK population will get first vaccine dose by May says government – BBC News
Almost half the UK population – around 32 million people – should receive their first dose of coronavirus vaccine by May, according to the government.
It says it expects all adults over the age of 50 – as well as the clinically vulnerable and those working in health and social care – to be offered their first jab by then.
The UK’s medicines regulator says the latest research shows side effects from all the approved vaccines are minor and don’t last long.
Progress with the UK vaccination programme is raising questions about when lockdown restrictions may be relaxed.
