British Prime Minister Boris Johnson received the second dose of the coronavirus vaccine on Thursday and expects to see the full vaccination schedule.
The President himself announced this through his account on the social network Twitter, where he encouraged citizens to follow his example and urged “when it is your turn to get vaccinated”.
The first part of the vaccination schedule was given to Johnson on March 19 at St. Thomas Hospital in Lobres, a town where he also received the second part, but this time at the Crick Institute.
News of the vaccination comes when it is known that more than half of the UK population has already received the two doses of the vaccine, according to the latest government figures that confirmed 5,274 new coronavirus infections this Thursday. This number represents the largest increase in the number of cases since the end of March.
Additionally, 18 deaths from the disease have been reported in the past 24 hours, bringing the death toll to 127,812 of the nearly 4.5 million positives recorded since the pandemic began.
