UK GPs are being incentivised to vaccinate vulnerable housebound residents against COVID-19, as the country delivered almost 1000 vaccinations a minute over the weekend.

Doctors are being offered the equivalent of an additional $18 for every housebound patient they vaccinate, with the government attempting to inoculate all those aged 70 and over, along with front-line health workers, by 15 February.
