London: The United Kingdom has secured over 110 million shots of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines against the Coronavirus to cover the immunisation efforts for two years, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday.

“Today the UK has ordered 114 million more Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for the next two years, future proofing our lifesaving vaccine programme,” Johnson tweeted.

The vaccines will be bound to modifications in line with possible new variants of the Coronavirus, he added.

The UK began a nationwide vaccination campaign in early December 2020. To date, some 76 percent of the country’s population have received at least one dose of a vaccine against COVID-19, and some 69 percent have completed the vaccination course. In addition, some 27 percent of the population have been administered booster shots, according to the UK Government.
