BRITS will be able to get a Covid jab 24/7, Boris Johnson vowed on Wednesday.

The PM pledged to set up round-the-clock vaccination centres “as soon as we can” — and hailed The Sun’s Jabs Army drive, urging 450,000 civil servants to join to help the roll-out.

It came as a daily record of 1,564 UK coronavirus deaths was announced.

Some 400,000 Brits a day could soon get jabs as Covid vaccines are doled out round-the-clock, Government sources said yesterday.

The PM vowed doses will be rolled out day and night as a huge stream of vaccines become available.

Boris said the vaccination process was already going “exceptionally fast” but “at the moment the limit is on supply”.

He told the Commons: “We have a huge network — 233 hospitals, 1,000 GP surgeries, 200 pharmacies and 50 mass vaccination centres.”

He promised there is a “big, big stream” of vaccines coming, and vowed to set up 24/7 vaccine centres “as soon as we can”.

The pledge came as the NHS started to set up pilot schemes where healthcare workers on night shifts can get the jab.
