‘Autumn deadline’ for UK’s Covid-19 vaccinations, health secretary promises

The health secretary has promised that all adults in the UK will be offered the Covid vaccine by the autumn, Pulse reports.

Speaking on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show on Sunday 10 Jan, Matt Hancock said: “Every adult will be offered a vaccine by the autumn, absolutely.

“We’ve got over 350 million doses on order. They’re not all here yet and we’re rolling them out as fast as they get delivered. But we are going to have enough to be able to offer a vaccine to everyone over the age of 18 and by the autumn.”

He also told the presenter that the lockdown restrictions would end on 31 March. 

"A must-have for any GP locum.

I have used NASGP website since I started locuming three years ago. It caters for all my locum needs, and I found LocumDeck particularly useful for bookings and invoicing. The automatically-generated invoices and pension forms save me countless hours of admin time every month, and the recently introduced e-signed forms are brilliant.

The assistance I have received has always been quick and helpful. The forums and updates have also kept me in the loop with important issues which may affect my practice.

I cannot recommend this website enough. "
