THE UK has secured early access to 90 million doses of coronavirus vaccines.
No 10 have signed deals for three jabs, one being jointly developed by BioNTech and Pfizer, another by French company Valneva and the third with AstraZeneca.
Business minister Alok Sharma said: “This new partnership with some of the world’s foremost pharmaceutical and vaccine companies will ensure the UK has the best chance possible of securing a vaccine that protects those most at risk.”
All three jabs are still in the development stages.
And results from the first round of trials of an Oxford university vaccine are due to be published in the Lancet medical journal today.
