WEEKLY UPDATE 19 March 2021 – 每周疫情快讯 2021年3月19日

I: Vaccination programme hits a bump in the road out of lockdown     NEW

People aged 50-55 received Covid vaccination invitations this week. The Government is 2 weeks ahead of schedule.  However, due to a supply issue, people under 50 must wait until May before receiving their first jabs.  Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said that everyone in the first wave (priority groups 1-9) will receive their second jab by mid-April as it must be given within 12 weeks of the first vaccination. The schedule now looks like this: 

When might people receive their first vaccine dose?

All adults should be vaccinated by the end of July. 

You will be contacted by the NHS Vaccination Centre or your GP surgery.  The vaccination is free, and only available via the NHS in the UK. Any vaccinations being advertised by private clinics or on the internet may be fake and not approved by the official regular MHRA. You may be risking your health and wasting your money if you book a private vaccination. 

II: End of Shielding

The advice to the clinically extremely vulnerable to shield ends on 1st April. People on the shielding list will receive a notification letter soon.  Support measures such as reserved shopping slots may end. 


III: ‘The roadmap out of lockdown’    

We are still in Step 1 (Part 1) of the roadmap; Part 2 of Step 1 is scheduled to start on 29th March. 

Remember: each step will only be implemented if 4 tests are satisfied:                           

  • Test 1 The vaccination programme is on schedule
  • Test 2 Hospitalisations and deaths are reduced
  • Test 3 The NHS is not overwhelmed by a surge of new cases
  • Test 4 New variants of concern can be adequately managed

If these tests are not met, we will not move to the next stage.  Therefore, it is advisable to wait before you book holidays abroad as restrictions could continue beyond 21st June – the end of the roadmap.      

The dates are the earliest we can expect change. 

IV: Travel abroad 

Travel abroad is still prohibited except for specified reasons.  If you do have an exempt reason to travel to another country, you must complete a declaration form for international travel, available on the Gov.UK website. Link to the form here:
