No. 10 urges public to apply for vaccination

Members of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's team of experts on COVID-19 called on Wednesday on those that have not yet received a vaccine against the virus to apply for it and do so soon and urged the government to meet and come up with new ways to inspire those still hesitant to get inoculated.

Parliamentary Under-Secretary for COVID-19 Vaccine Deployment Nadhim Zahawi noted Britain has "come a long way" since the vaccination in the country started six months ago. Meanwhile, Dr. Mary Ramsay, head of immunization at Public Health England (PHE), stressed the jabs provide protection against serious complications linked to the Delta strain of the virus.

The team insisted that having as many people vaccinated as possible is the key tool to avoiding further spikes in infections from COVID-19, which the UK has been observing on its territory lately.
