London, February 21

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Sunday set a new July-end vaccination target as he promised that the rollout of jabs against Covid will go “further and faster”, covering every adult in the country.

Speaking a day before he is scheduled to table his plan for easing the Covid lockdown measures in Parliament on Monday, the UK PM said by July 31 all adults should have been offered the first dose of the vaccine.

The new pledge comes as the UK has met its February 15 target to cover the most vulnerable categories of the elderly and frontline workers. — PTI
