If the Government's plan for vaccination is ambitious at 13 million doses, (2 million per week) by mid Feb, in order to vaccinate all over 70s, then it surely needs to be even more ambitious after February.  In order to get everyone vaccinated by autumn or even the additional 20 million, in the plan,
                              ........
 will it not have to increase its vaccination programme to 4 million per week?
                                     ........
   then in order to keep everything on track and achieve "herd" immunity (80% vaccinated) by autumn, there will surely need be the 2 million vaccines per week for the first timers, in addition to those receiving the follow up dose!

A Pfizer spokesman was questioned by a Parliamentary committee today. He said 1 million doses ordered by UK Gov. should be delivered by end of 2021.
Moderna vaccine should have joined Pfizer and Oxford Zenecca by autumn.

Both of those are superb series.

I see Boris Johnson has said today that as soon as there is enough vaccine, centres will be working 24 hours a day. Hope my appointment isn't 3 am.  ;D

For those of you who haven't seen it, the UK's JCVI's document detailing their advice for priority groups and phases is worth a read as it shows how they reached their conclusions. It has a long list of references, of data and reports, that they took into consideration, including occupational risks.

GOV.UK
Updated 6 January 2021
Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation: advice on priority groups for COVID-19 vaccination, 30 December 2020
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/priority-groups-for-coronavirus-covid-19-vaccination-advice-from-the-jcvi-30-december-2020/joint-committee-on-vaccination-and-immunisation-advice-on-priority-groups-for-covid-19-vaccination-30-december-2020

Vaccine priority groups: advice on 30 December 2020
Phase 1 direct prevention of mortality and supporting the NHS and social care system[/b


The next phase further reduction in hospitalisation and targeted vaccination of those at high risk of exposure and/or those delivering key public services

As the first phase of the programme is rolled out in the UK, additional data will become available on the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines. This data will provide the basis for consideration of vaccination in groups that are at lower risk of mortality from COVID-19.

The committee is currently of the view that the key focus for the second phase of vaccination could be on further preventing hospitalisation.

Vaccination of those at increased risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 due to their occupation could also be a priority in the next phase. This could include first responders, the military, those involved in the justice system, teachers, transport workers, and public servants essential to the pandemic response. Priority occupations for vaccination are considered an issue of policy, rather than for JCVI to advise on. JCVI asks that the Department of Health and Social Care consider occupational vaccination in collaboration with other government departments.

Occupations which get little publicity are those in the justice system. There's a massive backlog of court cases. Justice delayed is justice denied. Several prison officers have died. Prisoners are spending 23 hours a day in their cells, leading to deterioration in mental health.

Have you got a typo in that or a missing word/number?

Just 1 million doses from Pfizer by the end of 2021 doesn't seem right.

Answering my own question here.

I think MS' quote was a reference to the following Select Committee meeting which included executives from AstraZeneca in which they stated they're committed to providing 100 million doses to the UK by end of 2021. When asked about delivery in the near future they stated they're on track to 'release' 2M per week, and that if they average 2M per week it'll meet the commitment of 100M by the end of the year.
