Are they still giving us effective protection against COVID?

Vaccines were rolled out to key workers and the very vulnerable in December 2020, and since then more than 38.7 million people in the UK have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. Our expert panel will discuss how effective the vaccines have been at stopping the spread of infection, how they're working against new variants, and the possibility of boosters coming in later this year.
