The success of the vaccination programme means that stringent economic and social restrictions may not be needed to prevent unsustainable pressure on the National Health Service this autumn. The risk of COVID-19 is now being managed through pharmaceutical interventions like vaccines and antivirals, including vaccines for those aged 12 to 15 years old, continuing the Test, Trace and Isolate programme, and managing risks at the border.
