Those receiving Pfizer / BioNTech need two doses to achieve 95% efficacy.
However, a decision was made to give more people the first vaccination priority.
The second, accelerated shot, will then wait a little longer as doctors in the country struggle to secure the four most vulnerable groups in the UK by February.
At the top of the priority list are people living and working in nursing homes over the age of 80 and health professionals in the first place.
It is the turn of people over the age of 75, and the priority list also includes those aged 70 and over, as well as those who are clinically extremely vulnerable.
A huge company would mean vaccinating millions of people a week – with current numbers in the hundreds of thousands.
There are also more than five million completed doses awaiting final reviews and deployment plans – all of which can be accelerated this week, officials told The Times.
At a press conference last week, Boris Johnson explained that the first dose of the vaccine was immunized against the most serious cases of Covid-19, as the number 10 promised that as many people as possible would be vaccinated with the first blow.
And more than a million people have already been vaccinated, the prime minister said, including 23 percent of people over the age of 80.
No. 10 now also plans to publish daily vaccination data, as the British are approaching a kind of appearance of normalcy day by day, as the vaccine is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Street pharmacies reportedly offered to help manage the Covid prisons.
Business bosses, including Boots and Lloyds, say they are “desperate” to ease the pressure on NHS doctors – but say the government has rejected them.
Overnight, they claimed they would not deliver any Covid vaccine to hospitals on Sunday, despite the 2 million target.
The UK was freshly closed this week on Monday, with March-style measures in place and a sharp “stay home” message again.
But the prime minister also tried to reassure the British that his plan to vaccinate everyone was on its way, just hours after he ordered everyone to stay home.
Mr Johnson promised that the government’s new strategy of giving as many first doses as possible was the right one – and would save lives.
He said: “Together with Pfizer and Oxford / AstraZeneca – as of this afternoon – we have now vaccinated more than 1.1 million people in England and more than 1.3 million across the UK.
“And that includes more than 650,000 people over the age of 80, which is 23 per cent of all people over the age of 80 in England.

“And that means almost every fourth of the most vulnerable groups will have a significant level of immunity in 2 to 3 weeks – all of them.”
He said it was essential to consider the importance of the great progress made so far.
The average age of Covid deaths is in the ’80s, he added.
