Over 25s will be offered a Covid vaccine from next week, according to reports.
A two-week delay is being considered to the planned easing of restrictions in England on June 21 as the number of people with coronavirus rose by 75 per cent.
According to the Telegraph, the two-week delay will be used to accelerate second jabs for over-40s, moving from a 12 to eight-week gap between doses, echoing the practise that is already in place for over-50s.
Those 25 and over will also be offered the jab.
The country had been the only popular summer holiday destination allowed for quarantine-free travel.
However, the government moved it to the amber list, due to increasing Covid-19 cases.
