UK Covid live: under-40s in Glasgow invited to get vaccine as Johnson urges ‘caution’ with many restrictions lifting


The two issues with that are that, first of all, we’re really not quite sure how well the vaccines will interrupt transmission, particularly for this new variant.

We do know they protect people against getting sick and that’s something we can hold on to and use as a strategy.

The other thing is, that after a first dose of these vaccines, it does take two/three weeks at least before that protection begins to emerge, so what you do now is not really going to have much influence over what happens over the next couple of weeks.

So for those two reasons we do need to think strategically about what we do with the vaccine doses that we’ve got at the moment over the next two weeks right around the country, in order to minimise the chances of this new variant causing a very major third wave.
