    With Salford's vaccination programme a roaring success story already, the PM has pledged that all Adults in the United Kingdom will be offered a vaccine by the end of July.

    The move should see all adults over the age of 50 and over offered a vaccination by April 15th, alongside those under the age bracket who suffer from underlying health issues which put them more at risk from the virus.

    However, Mr Johnsons expedited plans are yet to be outlined by the Joint Committee on vaccination and immunisation, which ultimately has control over the order in which vaccinations are given.

    With more than 16.8 million people having already had at least the first jab, the PM feels confident of a steady supply of vaccines which he hopes will return the country to at least some part of normality.

    There are now over 15,000 vaccinations sites across the county and reportedly over 600,000 people have had their second doses. Salford's NHS Clinical Commissioning Group have been contacting people and administering jabs at its vaccination hubs across the city. All adults in Salford will be called up when they are eligible, you do not have to contact your GP.

    The PM is meeting tomorrow to discuss the possibility of reopening primary schools from the 8th of March and it is expected that he will be presenting his long awaited roadmap to reopen the country and decrease the lock down in a series of cautious steps.

    There have been calls for the JCVI to prioritise teaching staff, police officers and other frontline workers when they release their next priority list.
