Boris Johnson has said there is no need to worry about a lack of Pfizer vaccine for a second dose.
At a press conference on Downing Street, the Prime Minister said April was “the second dose month”.
He said, “As far as we can see at the moment, there is no need to worry that Pfizer will run out on the second dose.
“We will continue to introduce and supply this and as I said April will be the second month of dosing.
“It’s very important that everyone gets their second dose.”
Mr Johnson said the easing of lockdown restrictions in England starting Monday would be “appreciated” by the people but stressed the need for a “cautious” approach along the roadmap.
He said, “The whole point of the roadmap and timescale we have is that we have the ability to evaluate the data as we go.”
Senior Scientific Advisor Sir Patrick Vallance said next week would be the earliest time the impact of schools reopening would be assessed.
