Meanwhile, another 14,586 people had their first coronavirus vaccine dose on Sunday, taking the total to 48,593,019.

A further 35,131 people had their second jab, meaning 44,466,121 are now fully vaccinated in the UK.

The figures come as the UK’s vaccine programme steps up with booster invites being sent out for vulnerable people, and 12 to 15-year-olds starting to receive their jabs.

Up to three million youngsters are now eligible for coronavirus shots across the UK.
