British Prime Minister Boris Johnson met with staff and patients, during a visit to Barnet Football Club’s ground at the Hive, which is being used as a coronavirus vaccination center, in London, Monday, January 25.
Barnet Football Club in north London has delivered around 13,000 jabs since mid-December.
Speaking at the site, Prime Minister Johnson said the program is “on target” and that the vaccination of the most vulnerable groups – organized by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization – will be completed by the middle of February.
Johnson did not indicate when schools will reopen, which has been the subject of great concern for parents and teachers.
Britain is several weeks into a lockdown to try to slow the spread of the virus.
Pubs, restaurants, gyms, entertainment venues and many shops are closed, and people are required to stay largely at home.
The source stated that the lockdown rules will be reviewed on February 15, after the first 4 groups are immunized against the virus.
However, Britain has vaccinated over 6 million people.
Britain has reported more than 3.6 million COVID-19 cases and more than 98,000 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. (AP) As gathered from the Voice of America.
