It is widely understood that the government will continue prioritising people by age, after calls for key workers like teachers to be offered a jab next. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation is set to present a series of recommendations focusing on age groups.

The Government is aiming for every adult in the UK to have been offered their first vaccine against Covid-19 by July 31. Most recently, GPs have been told to invite adults on the learning disabilities register to get the vaccine, as well as all those aged 16 to 64 with underlying health conditions.
Ministers are said to be considering whether “vaccine passports” could be used in Britain to reopen nightclubs and other venues.
