Millions more adults are edging closer to being given their coronavirus vaccine after the Government announced the priority order for phase two – when will you get yours?

With more than 19 million Brits having already received their first dose, Downing Street laid its plans for phase two of the roll-out.

People aged 40 to 49 are next in line after advisers concluded that inoculating in order of age remained the quickest way to cut deaths.

However, there was no hoped for priority for teachers and the police due to fears it could slow progress, despite schools set to re-open on March 8.

The percentage of people testing positive has decreased in all English regions except Yorkshire and the Humber, according to the latest ONS figures.

And the UK’s estimated R number remains unchanged at between 0.6 and 0.9.

But nevertheless, the nation was tonight sent a stark warning not to “wreck” lockdown after “worrying signs” that cases could be on the rise.

Jonathan Van-Tam used the Friday night No10 press conference to stop people “relaxing” over a summer weekend.

Prof Van-Tam told the briefing: “In some parts of the UK, case rates are changing, albeit slowly, but in the wrong direction.

“This is not a good sign, and reinforces the fact that, I’m afraid, this battle at the moment is not won.”

The new priority order comes after PM Boris Johnson ambitiously claimed earlier this week that all adults will have had their first jab by July.
