Pfizer/BioNTech’s coronavirus vaccine has been approved in the UK for widespread use, thus making it the first country in the world. The MHRA, British regulatory, highlighted that the jab offers up to ninety-five per cent protection against COVID-19 illness, and will be safe for distribution next week.

The UK has ordered forty million doses, which is enough to vaccinate twenty million people because it requires two doses per person. In addition, for those who need it the most, such as older adults in nursing homes, immunizations could start within days.

“Pfizer/BioNTech’s Coronavirus vaccine has been approved in the UK for widespread use.“

The vaccine from Pfizer/BioNTech is the fastest vaccine ever to go from idea to practice, taking only ten months to follow the same developmental steps that usually last 10 years.

Approximately fifty hospitals are on standby, and vaccination centres are being set up now.

Boris Johnson, Prime Minister, stated: "It's the protection of vaccines that will ultimately allow us to reclaim our lives and get the economy moving again."
