The new coronavirus will no longer be available in Britain until August, outgoing chairman of the government's Vaccine Task Force, Clive Dix, told the Daily Telegraph yesterday.

"At some point in August, the virus will no longer be available in the UK," Dix said, adding that he believed the booster vaccine program could be postponed to early 2022.

The government is considering which vaccines against Covid-19 will provide the best booster vaccination for vulnerable people later this year.

Dix told the Telegraph that he expects everyone in the UK to have received at least one dose by the end of July, by which time "we will probably have protected the population from all known variants".

The United Kingdom has delivered more than 51 million vaccines and is the second country in the world with the fastest vaccination campaign having delivered at least one dose to more than half of the country's adult population.

The British Vaccine Committee announced yesterday that people under the age of 40 should receive an alternative vaccine to AstraZeneca where possible, due to the low risk of rare thromboembolic events.

The Joint Vaccination and Immunization Committee (JCVI) said in its opinion that the recommendation was linked to the low levels of transmission of the Covid-19 epidemic in Britain and the availability of alternative vaccines from Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna.

Dix, who was appointed interim chairman of the task force in December, resigned last week.
