Europe’s Covid wave shows jab uptake in UK is ‘critical’, Sage member says
Prof John Edmunds says millions still unvaccinated and warns that surge on continent ‘shows how quickly things can go wrong’
The surge in coronavirus infections across Europe shows the “critical” need for people in the UK to get vaccinated, a government scientific adviser has said.
Prof John Edmunds, of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, told Sky News that the rise in cases on the continent underlined “how quickly things can go wrong”. He pointed out that there were still “many millions” across the UK who were still not fully vaccinated, while some have not had any Covid shots at all.
