The United Kingdom government is facing questions over coronavirus supply after warning of a significant reduction.
It is understood a delivery of millions of doses of the Oxford Astrazeneca Jab, produced by the Secrum Institute of India, has been held up by four weeks.
The NHS warned of a reduction in supply in England in April in a letter to local health organizations.
The Department of Health insists it is still on track to offer a first dose to all adults by the end of July.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the UK was ahead of schedule to offer a first does to all people aged over 50 by 15 April at a briefing at Downing Street.
More than 25 million people in the UK have had first dose of a covid vaccine, while around one point seven people have had a second Jab.
