Boris Johnson says Army will use ‘battle preparation techniques’ to meet Feb 15 vaccine target.

BORIS Johnson has vowed to deliver hundreds of thousands of Covid vaccines a day by next week - and has promised every care home resident will get a jab this month.

The PM said that by next Friday, January 15, the rollout of the vaccine would be hugely ramped up, as he revealed that nearly 1.5million had been given their first dose so far.

Putting Britain on a war-footing in his new strategy to defeat the virus with "battle preparation techniques to help us keep up the pace" the PM laid out his plan for how to get there.

A new national booking service for people to be vaccinated will also be unveiled - and no one will have to travel more than ten miles to get one, the PM added.

Speaking at a press conference tonight, he announced that GP-led vaccine sites providing jabs will increase to over 1,000 by the end of next week, and promised hundreds of thousands of doses every day.

And he insisted he had "no doubt" that there would be enough supply to offer everyone in the top four vulnerable groups a vaccine by his February 15 deadline.
