Britain, meanwhile, wants to accelerate its vaccination program because of the Corona mutant Delta, according to a media report. People over 40 years of age should receive their second vaccination within eight weeks of the first dose, reports the Telegraph. The usual interval between the first and second vaccination is usually twelve weeks with the AstraZeneca vaccine. People who are older than 25 years should receive a vaccination offer as early as next week. The UK had recently reported more than 6,000 new infections per day. The virus mutant Delta, which first appeared in India, is now dominant in Great Britain.
