    Boris Johnson said the changes in the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine would not force a change in the road map out of lockdown.

    He told reporters in Cornwall: “I’m massively grateful to the MHRA and the JCVI, they’ve done a fantastic job for our country throughout the pandemic, and they continue to do so.

    “And of course, we will be following their guidance completely.

    “These vaccines are safe, they’ve saved many thousands of lives and people should come forward to get their jabs and we’ll make sure that they get the right jabs.

    “And of course, I don’t see any reason at this stage at all to think we need to deviate from the road map. And we’re also very secure about our supply.”
