London. Despite declining vaccine deliveries in the coming weeks, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants to get out of the locked position.
Johnson said in London on Thursday: “We are on track to get what we want back. The first beer gardens and non-essential shops are scheduled to reopen in mid-April. However, before each easing, the infection situation must be checked.

The British government is currently expecting a slight delay in vaccinations against the corona virus, among other things, due to late delivery from India. Nevertheless, the set targets will be achieved – i.e. in mid-April for all particularly vulnerable groups and for all adults who received the first corona vaccine by July. So far, 25.7 million people in the country have been vaccinated for the first time, almost half of them adults.
Johnson and the head of the British Regulatory Commission assured that the benefits of the questionable astrogeneca vaccine outweigh its risks. The prime minister himself announced on Friday that he would be vaccinated – probably with an agent created by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford.
“The Oxford vaccine is safe. The Pfizer vaccine is safe. The safest way is to get the coveted, ”Johnson said. People should take advantage of their vaccine offer.
The British Regulatory Commission has announced that it will continue to investigate five cases related to rare blood clots. However, previous research confirms data from millions of vaccines with the AstraZeneca vaccine. If people experience headaches more than four days after vaccination, they should have their symptoms checked.
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) on Thursday declared the vaccine safe and recommended that it be reused after several EU countries suspended their vaccines.
