Milestone for NHS as 15m in UK receive first Covid vaccine

BBC, 15 Feb 2021
The UK has passed a major milestone with more than 15 million people given their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

In England everyone in the top 4 priority groups has now been offered a first injection.

The Prime Minister praised a truly nationwide effort and said everybody who'd contributed - from NHS staff to volunteers - should be “incredibly proud”.

The success of the vaccination programme is putting pressure on the government to make clear how and when the country will ease the lockdown and return to some kind of normality.
