London [UK], January 19 (ANI/Sputnik): More than 4 million people in the United Kingdom have received the first dose of a coronavirus vaccine, Public Health England said on Monday.
"A total of 4,062,501 people have now received the first dose of a vaccine," the health agency wrote on Twitter.
The UK is planning to vaccinate 14 million people from the first four priority groups by mid-February. The government aims to vaccinate all UK adults wishing to get inoculated by the fall. At certain sites, vaccines will be administered around the clock starting in late January.
