More than 19 million Brits have now received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine as the rollout continues across the UK.

And millions more adults are edging closer to being given jab, with the Government announcing the priority order for phase two.

The vaccine programme - the biggest in NHS history - continues to pick up pace with the over 60s set to be invited for their jabs this coming week.

It has left many people wondering when they will get the chance to have theirs.

In phase two of the programme, it was revealed that people aged 40 to 49 are next in line after advisers concluded that inoculating in order of age remained the quickest way to cut deaths.

However, criticism was raised that occupations such as teachers and police were not included, with fears it could slow progress, especially with schools set to re-open on March 8.

The percentage of people testing positive has decreased in all English regions except Yorkshire and the Humber, according to the latest ONS figures, reports the Mirror.

And the UK's estimated R number remains unchanged at between 0.6 and 0.9.

But nevertheless, the nation is being urged to continue following the lockdown, with warnings that cases in some areas are starting to rise again.

Jonathan Van-Tam used the Friday night No10 press conference to stop people "relaxing" over a summer weekend.

Prof Van-Tam told the briefing: "In some parts of the UK, case rates are changing, albeit slowly, but in the wrong direction.

"This is not a good sign, and reinforces the fact that, I'm afraid, this battle at the moment is not won."

The new priority order comes after PM Boris Johnson ambitiously claimed earlier this week that all adults will have had their first jab by July.
