Nadhim Zahawi - the UK's vaccines minister - has SLOT XO now finished his statement to the House of Commons.
Today's the last day of term for MPs in Parliament before the summer recess starts.
This is what we learned:
Vaccines have stopped 52,600 people being hospitalised in England, new data released today by Public Health England shows
People should still be cautious even though restrictions have been eased, Zahawi said, as the average number of daily cases is around 41,000 - and 34% of people aged 18 to 29 have still not had their first vaccine dose
The government is still planning to make full vaccination a requirement for anyone wanting to go to nightclubs and certain other crowded venues. The plan is for it to come into force by the end of September - Zahawi said waiting until then was the right thing to do as businesses could prepare and all younger people would have time to get both jabs
Asked about which venues will require people to prove they've had the vaccine, Zahawi said the government was most concerned about nightclubs and other crowded indoor settings like music venues, as well as large outdoor events like festivals or spectator sport events
The actual Covid passport will be an NHS Covid pass, which will be available via the NHS app, the NHS website or by calling 119 and asking for a written document
16 August is still the date when the government is hoping to lift the rule to self-isolate after contact with someone with Covid - but this will only apply to people who are fully vaccinated, or children
Zahawi was criticised by Labour's Jonathan Ashworth over the government's 3% pay rise for NHS staff, with Ashworth calling it a "shambles"
