More than 20 million people in the UK have now received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, the health secretary has said.
Matt Hancock posted a video on his Twitter account with the announcement and thanked “every single person who’s come forward to get the jab”.
He said: “I’m absolutely delighted that over 20 million people have now been vaccinated across the UK - it’s absolutely fantastic.
“I want to thank every single person who’s come forward to get the jab because we know with increasing confidence that the jab protects you, it protects your community and it also is the route out of all of this for all of us.”
Vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi also celebrated the news, tweeting: “BINGO! One score over 20,000,000 people have had the vaccination (1st dose). What an achievement for February 2021. What a team! Proud to be with you on this journey.”
