LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday that over half a million people had received the COVID-19 vaccine in the country.
“Today I can announce that half a million people in the UK have now received their first dose,” Johnson told a news conference.
Earlier this month, the United Kingdom became the first country in the world to roll out the vaccine made by Pfizer and BioNTech.
