3.1 million doses so far, lets hope it continues at that (rising) pace. Does seem that some of the worst fears of the doubters on how effectively we could roll this out aren't being observed.
Do you have a reference for that please?
I've tried googling and can't find any reference to the govt stats on this!
Not sure of the actual source, but I know it should be on the ONS coronavirus statistics daily now.
I'm not convinced yet of the 3.1 million doses total, but I think it might be an issue with the clarity in terminology....
If we look at both of these sources, which match, they use similar phrasing and the same figures -
The first image is from the BBC page linked earlier (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-55652431
), with the second set of figures coming from the Government 'Healthcare' dashboard itself (https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/healthcare

), we can see that in the Jan 13th Excel spreadsheet linked at the bottom of that page, are these figures -
Now those figures seem to be quite closely aligned with the first sets of figures at a headline level, apart from the fact that the largest number is described as 'First dose
' in the earlier links, but as a cumulative-total
in the second, and I also think the particular use of the phrase 'of which
' in the final set of Excel daily-update data might be important here, but it's not clear at this stage if it's important because it's correct, or, given what seems to be a contradiction with the other Government dashboard, whether it's important because it's not...
