There were fears that young people would not want the jab but on Tuesday, given their first official chance, they stepped up.
I'm delighted that over a million coronavirus vaccine bookings were made yesterday – a record number.
Thank you to all 25 to 29 year olds – and older – who are coming forward to get the vaccine.
This is our route out.
