Government figures show 6,853,327 people have had the first dose, with 472,446 of them also receiving a second jab. 

It means England has vaccinated 12.9 per cent of the over-18 population with one dose.

Scotland has vaccinated 9.4 per cent, Wales 10.7 per cent and Northern Ireland 11 per cent. 

Health Secretary Matt Hancock confirmed on Monday 78.7 per cent of Brits over the age of 80 have been given a Covid vaccine.

That means nearly one in ten people across the country has had at least one dose and the Government is nearly half way to hitting 15million by mid-February.

 

Britain is ahead of all other countries in Europe in its vaccine drive and has one of the highest rates in the world.

There are now 37,561 people in hospital suffering from coronavirus, up 295 in the past 24 hours.
