Less than half UK population to receive coronavirus vaccine, says task force head

Less than half of the UK population will get a Covid vaccine with the elderly being top priority - a top advisor has warned.

Kate Bingham, who was appointed as the chair of the Vaccine Taskforce back in May has claimed that the public has been “misguided” when it comes to availability of a vaccine.

In an interview with the Financial Times, she said the government “needs to vaccinate everyone at risk”.

She said: “People keep talking about ‘time to vaccinate the whole population’, but that is misguided."
