UK ready for this week's vaccine roll-out

The British government stated on Sunday that Britain is preparing to become the first country to roll out the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine this week, making the shot available at hospitals before distributing stocks to doctors’ clinics.

The first doses will be administered on Tuesday, with the National Health Service (NHS) giving top priority to vaccinating the over-80s, frontline healthcare workers and care, home staff and residents.

Approximately 800,000 doses are expected to be available within the first week.
