First vials of Covid-19 vaccine come to Britain

The first vials of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine to battle Covid-19 have arrived in Britain.

It’s hoped vaccinations will start next Tuesday, said Chris Hopson, the CEO of NHS Providers.

The serum’s arrival comes as infections rates across England – apart from the North East – have dropped.


Meanwhile, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) defended the speed of its approval decision.

In a statement it said:

“We have rigorously assessed the data in the shortest time possible, without compromising the thoroughness of our review”.

The estimated R number for coronavirus has dropped to between 0.8 and 1.0 – it’s lowest level since August.

The R number is the average number of people with Covid-19 go on to infect.

The latest figures show new infections are dropping by 1% and 3% every day.
