    An extra 60 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine have been ordered by the UK government as it puts together plans for a vaccination booster programme in the autumn.

    It brings the total number of Pfizer doses ordered by the UK to 100 million.

    The expectation is that the most vulnerable groups will be offered another jab before next winter.

    Nearly two-thirds of UK adults have received one dose of a Covid vaccine with a quarter having had two.

    Health Secretary Matt Hancock told a Downing Street briefing the booster programme would “keep us safe and free here while we get this disease under control across the world”.
