London. The UK wants to vaccinate all adults in the country against the corona virus by the end of July. “We want to vaccinate all adults by the end of July, which will help protect the most vulnerable quickly and ease restrictions,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said after a government release on Saturday.
So far, more than 17 million people in the UK have received the first corona vaccine, almost one in three adults.
Due to early and comprehensive orders, Great Britain has fewer delivery restrictions than EU countries. In addition, the UK wants to give surplus vaccine levels to poor countries – but only when the British are vaccinated.
The World Trade Organization (WTO) has criticized this, calling on the country to eliminate a certain proportion of vaccines already available – as recommended by French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron.
Despite the rapid progress of the vaccine, Johnson said the path to locking must be “carefully and phase-wise”. On Monday, the Prime Minister wants to announce his plans for the first relaxation, which will include, among other things, some private meetings outside and private visitors to nursing homes. Returning children to school is also a priority for his government.
