Johnson names minister in charge of vaccine rollout

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson appointed on Saturday Nadhim Zahawi as health minister in charge of the distribution of coronavirus vaccines. Zahawi is currently a junior business minister and will continue to perform that role as well.

Zahawi is expected to oversee the rollout until at least the summer of 2021 and will report to Health Secretary Matt Hancock. "Delighted to have been asked by BorisJohnson to become the minister for Covid vaccine deployment. A big responsibility and a big operational challenge but absolutely committed to making sure we can roll out vaccines quickly," Zahawi stated.
