THE government is “absolutely confident” the UK will have 800,000 coronavirus vaccine doses by next week, when the vaccination programme starts, the business secretary has said.


Alok Sharma said some of the Pfizer/BioNTech doses had arrived, with more expected by the end of the year.

He was unable to say how many that will be.

NHS Providers said the UK must work on the basis that more doses beyond this might not arrive “for some time”.

Chief executive Chris Hopson tweeted that it was “vital” hospitals sought to vaccinate as many people as possible in the highest priority groups when vaccinations begin on Tuesday.

He added that with “every day that goes past, we become more confident we will get a lot more [doses] and get them soon”.
