Newspaper Headlines: Jabs ‘ramped up’ and Covid passport ‘scrapped’ & On their front pages, the Times, the i newspaper, and the Daily Express focus on the race to give every over 50-year-old in England a second vaccine dose by 21 June – the date when social distancing restrictions are due to be lifted.
BBC News: Staff:
The Times covers the same story, which Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi describes as a “race between the vaccine and the virus”. The paper’s analysis is that the vaccine will win the race to 21 June – if the NHS maintains its current race of second doses, all over-50s should receive theirs by the previous week.
It’s also described as a race in the Daily Express – this time a race for freedom. The paper quotes Health Secretary Matt Hancock saying the vaccine rollout may accelerate in time for the proposed end of lockdown.
Plans for mandatory vaccine passports to attend events in the UK – officially called Covid status certificates – have been scrapped, the Daily Telegraph reports. The paper quotes a source saying the plan is “dead” amid concerns that tourists would not be able to use the NHS app to prove their vaccine status and that some people cannot be vaccinated due to conditions such as severe allergies.”
“Taste of freedom” is the triumphant headline on the Daily Mirror front page, over a picture of bank holiday crowds on Bournemouth beach. It says millions took advantage of a heatwave after months of lockdown and weeks of rain.The Daily Mail focuses on one of the long-term effects of the pandemic, describing a “devastating toll” of lockdown on hip and knee patients, some of whom the paper says may have to wait two years for an operation. The paper is also one of the many to feature an image of Prime Minister Boris Johnson in shirtsleeves and his new wife Carrie with flowers in her hair, promising an insider view of the “festival chic” wedding.
Since a ban on combustible foam insulation for high-rise buildings was introduced in 2018 after the deadly Grenfell Tower fire, it has been used on about 70 schools, a report in the Guardian says. The paper says at least 25 hospitals, care homes and sheltered housing complexes have also been built with the cladding, as one schools leader calls for action to remove it.US regulators are planning to take a more active role in the $1.5 trillion market for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, the Financial Times reports in its main story.
It says there is growing concern that a lack of oversight of the volatile digital currencies risks causing harm to investors.And the Daily Star leads on what it calls a “British X-files to detect aliens”, saying that UK defence chiefs could restart their UFO desk following publication of a forthcoming Pentagon report into “unidentified aerial phenomena”. It was ordered last year by the former president, prompting the paper to conclude: “The truth IS out there… thanks to, er, Donald Trump.”
The papers pick up on the words of Vaccine Minister Nadhim Zahawi on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show yesterday when he said the aim was to “vaccinate at scale”.
The Daily Telegraph highlights NHS data, which suggests that fewer than half of people in their 50s have had their second jab.
According to the Daily Express, Health Secretary Matt Hancock says the vaccine rollout may be accelerated. But analysis by the Times concludes that the target should be met, even at current rates.
ReutersMinisters want to give second doses to all over-50s before the next stage on the roadmap out of lockdown, the papers say
The Daily Telegraph reports that plans to make Covid passports a legal requirement at large events are to be scrapped. The paper says it’s been told by a well-placed source that the proposal has been killed off.
The Telegraph suggests this may, in part, be because foreign visitors can’t use the NHS app and people with certain medical conditions can’t be vaccinated.
According to the Guardian, combustible cladding may have been put on 70 schools since the Grenfell Tower fire. The suggestion comes from a study by the insulation manufacturer, Rockwool.
The education department has put forward plans that would allow such cladding on school buildings under 69ft.
The Guardian says firefighters, politicians and the Construction Industry Council want combustible cladding banned. A Whitehall spokesperson insisted that all materials had to pass tough safety checks.
The Sun reports that British holidaymakers are missing their flights home because of delays by one Covid-19 test provider.
Some customers using the government-approved firm, Qured, complain that they have waited hours for their fit-to-fly certificates after a negative test.
Qured told the Sun that the timings of delivery and results were generally accurate, but could change due to circumstances out of its control.
Kelso Cochrane, who was 32 and from Antigua, was stabbed to death 62 years ago in Notting Hill in London by white youths.
Two people were questioned but never charged. Mr Cochrane’s family recently set up a petition demanding an apology from police for alleged failings in the investigation.
Finally, the newlyweds, Mr and Mrs Johnson, are pictured on most front pages after the prime minister tied the knot with his fiancee Carrie Symonds on Saturday.

The Daily Mail calls it an “oh-so Bohemian wedding”, complete with hay bales in the Downing Street garden and partying round a fire pit. The paper suggests the bride’s tulle dress was hired for the day.
The Daily Mirror focuses on the prime minister’s attire, saying he was dressed in a “wrinkled white shirt” – under the headline “Beauty and the Creased”.
