Coronavirus UK news – Covid ‘pretty much over’ with Britain ‘close to herd immunity’ thanks to vaccines, expert says


SAJID JAVID SAYS COVID VACCINES ‘ARE THE REASON I’M HERE TODAY’

Health Secretary Sajid Javid, who contracted Covid-19 despite being vaccinated, said the jabs were “the reason that I’m here today” just 10 days after a positive test.

He told the PA news agency: “My own experience, I think, is a good example, a reminder really, that by getting vaccinated you do absolutely reduce your own chances of getting a positive test result, of course, but you can still get the virus.

“I was one of many people who have been in that situation.

“But there’s no doubt that the reason that I’m here today, some 10 days after I had that positive test result, feeling absolutely fine, is because of the vaccines.

“My symptoms have been very mild and the latest information we have is that the vaccines in the UK, they’ve stopped 11 million infections, they’ve stopped 57,000 people from going to hospital and 37,000 people from dying.

“The vaccines are working.”
