Government data up to October 16 shows that of the 94,756,683 Covid jabs given in the UK, 49,398,211 were first doses, a rise of 23,706 on the previous day.

Some 45,358,472 were second doses, an increase of 32,983.

These latest figures come after former Prime Minister Gordon Brown said a failure to send unused Covid vaccines from Europe and the US to developing countries would be an act of “criminal” neglect.

Mr Brown told Sky News: “Many of them may go to waste – and that would be criminal – which could immediately be airlifted out to those countries where the level of vaccination is so low that not even the nurses and doctors are protected and certainly not the elderly and vulnerable.

“Boris Johnson promised at the G7 that he was going to vaccinate the whole world.

“He made this bold announcement that, by next year, everybody would be vaccinated who was an adult in the developing world as well as the developed world.

“But since then, so little has happened that we now face the possibility of every target being missed.”
