Johnson will highlight that vaccination will be the central part in getting England through the coming months.

A number of measures are set to be loosened over the coming weeks, with Johnson expected to tell MPs and the entire country that “we need to learn to live with Covid” and that vaccines are the main defence.

A senior Government source said: “The autumn and winter do offer some uncertainty but the Prime Minister is dead set against another lockdown.”
