Britain's Johnson visits hospital as Oxford vaccine rollout begins

More than 75,000 people in the United Kingdom have died from COVID-19 within 28 days of a positive test, and millions in England are already living under the strictest tier of restrictions.

Visiting a London hospital where health workers were among the first to receive the vaccine, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said new restrictions were forthcoming.

Johnson's government has secured 100 million doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine which can be stored at fridge temperatures between two to eight degrees, making it easier to distribute than the Pfizer shot.
