  • Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Matt Hancock says all adults over 50 are expected to be offered Covid vaccine by mid-April” – below is their description.

    The UK health secretary said one in three adults had now received their first dose of a coronavirus vaccine.

    The government expects all adults over 50 and those with health conditions to have been offered their first jab by 15 April, and all adults by 31 July.

    But Hancock said the easing of lockdown measures would be slowed if unexpected events threw the UK’s recovery off course, citing the Kent variant as a moment in the pandemic that had forced a change of approach.
