More than 130,000 people in the UK have received the Covid-19 vaccine and weekly vaccine figures will be published every week from next week. 

Nadhim Zahawi, the health minister who is in charge of the national rollout of the vaccine, announced the news via Twitter that 137,897 people have now been vaccinated. The latest figures come seven days after the start of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine rollout, as over 70 hospitals have been vaccinating the over-80s, along with some health and care staff.
