What is the COVID risk in the UK after 36 million single vaccination?

The latest report published by NHS shows until the Good Friday and before Easter holiday, the number of people who have received a first dose COVID-19 vaccination in the UK is totally 31,301,267. Also, 4,948,635 people received the second dose of the COVID-19 jab.

Later City News: Released data confirms that more than half of the adults in Britain have now received at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine. It is equal with 45.53% of total population.

The Guardian reported that The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, which recommended delaying booster shots for three months in Britain, estimates that after three weeks the first Pfizer shot has an efficacy of about 90% and the first AstraZeneca shot has an efficacy of about 70%. This means that whatever your risk of getting symptomatic Covid beforehand, it is roughly 90% or 70% lower, depending on which shot you have. But these numbers must be treated with caution.
