The British vaccine uses 4 different immunization agents, all of which are approved by the country’s health authority and distributed free of charge by the NHS, a public health organization similar to Brazilian SUS.
Vaccines approved in the UK:
The first three complete immunizations require two doses, while the Johnson vaccine (Johnson & Johnson) requires only one dose of protection.

Experts have been predicting this increase since the country was gradually reopened, with more people on the streets and the first to be identified in India with the dominance of delta diversity.
Nevertheless, the British government maintains a July 19 deadline to end all restrictions against Govt-19, which is the height of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.
In the United Kingdom, where the delta variant already dominates, the Ministry of Health has confirmed that both doses used provide protection against infections.
“Data show us that it is important for people to get both doses of the Covit-19 vaccine because they can effectively protect against delta variation,” said Minister Matt Hancock.
