The UK has become the first country in the world to accept the coronavirus vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech. The vaccination program will begin soon, with people over the age of 80, NHS staff and caring home staff facing the queue. It will then be assigned based on age and vulnerability assessment. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned that the level system in England and the separate regimes in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are crucial and that people must continue to abide by the rules. The MHRA, the regulator of the drug that approved the vaccine in record time, stressed that “no corners” have been cut in the admission process. Both Downing Street and UK drug regulators have spoken out against Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s claim that it was possible to get the vaccine approved quickly because of Brexit. The MHRA said the supply was permitted using provisions under current European law that are still in effect until New Year’s Day. Spreading the vaccine will be a huge logistical exercise and a post-Brexit deal could also have an impact because supplies will come from Belgium.
