Coronavirus UK news – London ‘MUST go into new tier 3 lockdown’, expert says despite covid boost of 1m extra vaccines

GPS can start booking Covid vaccine appointments within days with the UK set to get at least one million more jabs imminently.

The news comes as hundreds of OAPs received the vaccine after the UK became the first country in the world to start using the Pfizer vaccine. 

It has now emerged two more consignments of the vaccine will be delivered both next week and the following week – on top of the initial 800,000 doses. 

The Times reports that means the NHS should now have four million doses of the jab before Christmas.

Although the vaccine offers some light at the end of the tunnel, things could get worse before they get better for Londoners, with the capital on the brink of moving into tier 3 lockdown within a matter of days.

With data showing case numbers are continuing to rise in tier 2 London, Prof Kevin Fenton, London regional director for Public Health England, urged the government to put the capital under the strictest tier restrictions.
