On Tuesday, the minister in charge of the vaccine rollout said inoculating 13.9 million people was a “Herculean effort”.
He told Sky News: “It is a stretching target no doubt, but I’m confident that with this plan that the NHS have put together that we will deliver this.”
When asked if the UK needs to offer more than two million doses a week to deliver the Government’s target, Mr Zahawi added: “Absolutely, you’re going to see that increase.
“The NHS have got a very clear plan. We’ve got a fantastic team working seven days a week all hours to deliver this.
“As I said, I think it’s a stretching target, no doubt it’s a stretching target, but I think it’s one that we should absolutely look to deliver.”
