Britain is facing a quieter week in its vaccination rollout due to uneven supply schedules, health minister Matt Hancock said on Tuesday, adding he expects supplies to increase next month.

Asked about Monday’s vaccination figures, which were the lowest level since daily figures were first published on January 11, Hancock said: “It’s all about the supply. We have got a quieter week this week and then we’re going to have some really bumper weeks in March.”
