UK in talks to join EU vaccine scheme - report

The United Kingdom and the European Union are currently in talks for London to join the bloc's coronavirus vaccine purchase plan, the Financial Times reported on Friday.

The European Commission told the news organization that Brussels "invited the [UK] to express its interest if it wants to participate in the joint EU approach established by the vaccine strategy" and that the negotiations are ongoing.

According to British officials, Downing Street is contemplating whether the benefits of working together with the EU outweigh the political desire to sever ties with the bloc, the FT wrote.
