People in the UK aged 70 or over who have not yet had a Covid-19 vaccine jab have been urged to come forward, in a final push by ministers to meet their vaccination target. More than 14 million people in the UK have had at least one dose - with the aim being 15 million by Monday. Meanwhile, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said the UK could this year live with Covid "as we do with flu", the BBC reported. "I hope that COVID-19 will become a treatable disease by the end of the year," he told a leading British media outlet. Over the weekend, ministers are taking part in a renewed drive to encourage people in the top four priority groups — comprising people aged 70 and over, front-line health and social care workers, care home residents, and the clinically extremely vulnerable — to get vaccinated.
