A 90-year-old woman has become the first person to be given a Covid jab as part of the mass vaccination programme being rolled out across the UK.

Up to four million more are expected by the end of the month.

Hubs in the UK will vaccinate over-80s and some health and care staff – the programme aims to protect the most vulnerable and return life to normal.

The UK is the first country in the world to start using the Pfizer vaccine after regulators approved its use last week.

Vaccination is not compulsory.

Some 800,000 doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine have been secured by the government to be administered in the coming weeks.

Orders have been placed for 40 million in total – enough for 20 million people, as two courses are needed.

Below is how it works:
