Breaking News: The entire UK population will’probably’ receive two Covid vaccines by August.

According to the head of the UK’s Vaccine Task Force, all adults in the UK will “probably” get both coronavirus vaccines by August.

Clive Dix, which runs C4X, an agency that buys vaccines on behalf of the UK government, said the entire adult population in the UK is likely to be fully vaccinated within six to seven months.

In an interview with Sky News, Dix said: “I’m sure the supplies we’ll get will take us in a position to immunize as many people as the UK wants.”

“We’re probably over in August or September. We can do it sooner if needed.

He said the UK would “definitely” get the vaccine supply at the promised rate over the next three to six months. This means that the jab rollout will be slowed down by hiccups.

So far, more than 14 million people have received Covid jabs for the first time, including the top four priority groups.

The government now plans to provide the first vaccinations to over 50s by the end of April, with more appropriate targets reaching all adults in the UK by fall.

The Prime Minister announced yesterday that the NHS has begun sending letters to people over 65 and clinically ill.

7.3 million people across the UK with severe clinical conditions include adults with blood cancer, diabetes, dementia, severe asthma, severe mental illness, and many other conditions.

Dix said the Vaccine Task Force is confident in supplying the jab over the next few months due to its diverse drug portfolio.

The UK has now ordered 475 million doses of vaccine produced by seven companies.

This includes ordering a 50m capacity of the “next generation” vaccine produced by Curevac, particularly suited to targeting the emerging Covid strain.

To date, rapid vaccine launches in the UK have relied entirely on both Astrazeneca/Oxford University and Pfizer/Biontech jab, both of which have been approved for emergency use.

However, with the addition of a vaccine that will be added to the UK roster in the coming months, ministers will soon be able to cog faster.

In an interview with Sky, Dix said, “The product we’re working on is doing very well.

“Of course, there may be manufacturing issues, like the manufacturer or elsewhere, but complex vaccines can lead to problems.

“But we have a portfolio approach, so there are other vaccines that will be approved in the near future.”

The UK’s pharmaceutical regulatory agency approved the Moderna vaccine for emergency use last month, making it the third jab in the UK’s vaccine portfolio.

The drug, which has proven to be 94% effective in protecting against coronavirus in clinical trials, will be released in the UK in two weeks.

Just as Boris Johnson promised the British Summer of England would return in 2021, he said the largest vaccination program in American history will prove the light at the end of the tunnel of infectious diseases.

However, he has so far refused to provide a solid date to end the lockdown restrictions and insisted that the coronavirus rate should be really, really low before the action is lifted.

Johnson pledged to come up with a roadmap for lifting the lockdown on February 22nd, adding that, if possible, ministers will provide a date to ease certain measures.
