More than 18.6 million people in the UK have received their first COVID-19 vaccine.

In the Watford constituency more than 23,990 have been vaccinated and this number continues to climb.

Watford's MP said "I'd like to thank everybody involved with the roll-out, both here in Watford and across the UK. We owe a huge amount also to our world leading scientists who have worked tirelessly to get us to this point.

The fantastic vaccine rate along with the PM's roadmap gives us reason to be hopeful that the end is in sight. As Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi said the vaccination programme is "beginning to really bear fruit."

I would encourage everybody to take the vaccine when they are invited to do so."
