The UK has administered more than 15 million vaccines, official figures showed.
According to the latest government data as of 12 February, a total of 15,091,696 Kovid-19 vaccines have been administered in the UK so far.
Out of a total of 15 million, there were 14,556,827 first doses and some 534,869 second doses – an increase of 4,775 from figures released the previous day.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he expected a combination of vaccines and the new treatments would mean Kovid could be a ‘treatable disease’ by the end of 19 years.
But concerns about vaccination rates have increased in some communities.
Mr. Hancock made a direct appeal to anyone at the age of 70 who still had not been contacted by the NHS this weekend to take an appointment.
“I am determined to protect the most vulnerable people in our country from this terrible disease as soon as possible,” he said. “Vaccines are the way out of this epidemic.”
With the Department of Health and Welfare (DHSC) reporting a 93% adoption rate among over 75 people in England, adoption of the vaccine was very high.
The DHSC is now looking to work with community organizations and charitable institutions in England to address concerns that make some people hesitant to take a hit, while also trying to dispel “myths” circulating on social media Huh.
NHS England Managing Director Sir Simon Stevens praised the staff for their efforts to reach millions of people with vaccines.
During a visit to Coventry University Hospitals and Warwickshire NHS Trust with Mayo Parsons, Sir Simon, the world’s first vaccinated nurse outside of a clinical trial at Maggie Keenan in December, said, ‘Thank you to the fantastic staff like this May is. The NHS is offering Europe’s fastest and largest Kovid vaccination program.
“The entire NHS volunteers, local authorities, military and local businesses have come together to protect the most vulnerable, supported by visiting communities.
“After a year of heavy pandemic pressure, it has been a huge and unique team effort that gives us real hope for the future.”
