Nadhim Zahawi has warned that the pandemic isn’t over as England reached stage 4 of the lockdown roadmap.

The vaccines minister cautioned that “we are not at the finish line yet”, and the public should see this is the “next phase” of the pandemic.

Speaking in the House of Commons, the minister also confirmed that high-risk children over 12 and teenagers three months shy of their 18th birthday would be offered a jab.
