🗓️Boris Johnson has warned that only the double jabbed will be allowed to "play en masse" in September.

💉But millions of young people are still yet to get vaccinated.

Read @sarahknapton's analysis of the latest restrictions 👇
🔴By Sunday, every adult in the country had been offered a vaccine, yet three million 18 to 34-year-olds – 35% – have either not booked an appointment or have decided to reject the jab
📈Infections are highest in those aged 20 to 29, with 614 cases per 100,000 people compared to just 27.9 per 100,000 in the over-80s.

"It means the very people who are driving the pandemic are taking the least responsibility in stopping it," writes @sarahknapton
💉"There are around 13 million under-16s in Britain, which means that even with a perfect vaccine uptake only 80% of the population could be vaccinated, making it far harder now to reach herd immunity"
