The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine has been approved for use in the UK, with the first doses due to be given on Monday.
The UK has ordered 100 million doses – enough to vaccinate 50 million people.
Along with the Pfizer-BioNTech jab, the UK now has enough to cover the entire population, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said.
He described the development as a “significant moment” in the fight against the virus.
Speaking on BBC Breakfast, he said he could “now say with confidence we can vaccinate everyone”.

“We’ve got enough of this vaccine on order to vaccinate the whole population – 100 million doses. Add that to the 30 million doses of Pfizer and that’s enough for two doses for the entire population,” he added.

On Tuesday, 53,135 new Covid cases were recorded in the UK – the highest single day rise since mass testing began – as well as 414 more deaths within 28 days of a positive test.
