Vaccination Programme Accelerated for Over-50s

More than 36 million people in the UK have been vaccinated with one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and 20 million people have received two doses.

The gap between doses for those aged 50 and over has been lowered from 12 weeks to 8 weeks. Those who have taken one dose are urged to take the second dose as soon as they are eligible to ensure the fullest protection. More information can be found on the government website.
