Wed 13 January 2021:
UK will start administering Covid-19 vaccine in new vaccine centers on a 24/7 basis as soon as possible, Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed Wednesday.
Taking questions from lawmakers at the House of Commons, Johnson said details of the round-the-clock rollout will be given by his health secretary.
Johnson revealed earlier in the week that the vaccine centers will start vaccinating people non-stop, as the government targets giving a dose of the jab to around 15 million people by mid-February.
Criticized by Labour Party leader Keir Starmer for lagging anti-Covid-19 measures, Johnson said the lockdown measures seem to be working.
Starmer had stressed that further and tougher measures will be needed as the situation is worse now.
Officials say 2.4 million people have been vaccinated to date.
Vaccinations are now being offered to four top priority groups.
