The UK Government has reached its target of offering a vaccine to the estimated 15 million people in its top four priority groups by 15 February.
The four groups include the over-70s, frontline health and care workers, and the clinically extremely vulnerable.
The next target for Downing Street is getting the jab to the 17.7 million in the next five priority groups - including all over-50s - by the end of April.
The UK mass vaccination programme started on 8 December 2020, when Coventry grandmother Margaret Keenan became the first person in the world to receive the Pfizer Covid-19 jab.
The UK has ordered 407 million doses of seven different vaccines, three of which – Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford-AstraZeneca and Moderna – have already been approved for use.
