  • the breaking news that the first coronavirus vaccine has been approved for use in the UK by the medicines on Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency.

  • That's the M R H a M A Z promised.

  • Let's speak now to the health secretary, Matt Hancock, who joins us live on breakfast.

  • A significant smile on your face this morning.

  • Mr.

  • Hancock, talk us through this news and what it means to the people in the UK this morning.

  • Well, 2020 has been such a terrible year, hasn't it?

  • Andi help is on its way on this this news for so long we've been saying that if a vaccine is developed, then things will get better in 2021.

  • And now we can say when this vaccine is rolled out, things will get better.

  • We'll start that process next week, So I'm obviously absolutely thrilled with the news.

  • I'm very proud that the UK is the first place in the world to have a clinically authorized vaccine ready to G o.

  • The huge thanks to the scientists to Pfizer, the the company, obviously to my team, and Kate Bingham and Alok Sharma, the business secretary, has done a huge amount of work on this.

  • But what it means for people is that from next week will be able to start rolling this out.

  • We'll start with those who are most vulnerable Toe coronavirus.

  • Andi, it will.

  • You need to jabs.

  • So 21 days apart eso.

  • After that, we will start protecting people.

  • As this protection comes with these thes two jabs Andi, it will help save lives.

  • And then once we've started Thio on protected, the most vulnerable, it will help us all get back to normal and on back to allow the things that we love.

  • Can we go through some of the numbers if possible?

  • Cause I'm sure that's what our viewers will be thinking this morning.

  • Okay.

  • How Maney When does it arrive?

  • So that initial order of 10 million, which is enough to vaccinate five million people.

  • Do we know how many of those will be arriving next week?

  • Well, next week there'll be 800,000, so it's the first start will then deploy it at the speed that it's manufactured on.

  • The manufacturing, of course, is being done by Pfizer in Belgium on the S O.

  • That will determine the speed at which we can roll it out.

  • As we've said all along, we've always said Even if we get something before Christmas, we will have the bulk of the roll out in the new year on.

  • That's what will happen in this case, Aziz, You said earlier in the program we have 40 million doses on order of this vaccine.

  • The other early vaccine, the AstraZeneca vaccine, is currently being assessed by the NRA.

  • Eso The goal will be to vaccinate through the NHS right across the UK as rapidly as the company can manufacture.

  • Okay, I know we've got you for about another 10 minutes and there are so many questions, which I'm sure we're gonna try and get as much information out of you as possible as we can.

  • Can I start with that 800,000 that you say will arrive next week?

  • Who will be on the list to get those that first batch?

  • If you like?

  • Well, the the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunizations Long title.

  • But they're the clinical advisors who advise on that prioritization.

  • So it's according to clinical need.

  • The goal is thio.

  • Save as many lives as possible and stop hospitalizations aan de So it will start with the most elderly and with people in care homes on, of course, their carers Thio, make sure that that others don't catch it on.

  • Then essentially, it comes down the age range on date.

  • Just staff are also high on the priority list.

  • Onda, also the clinically extremely vulnerable, who have supported throughout this crisis those who are particularly vulnerable.

  • Thio coronavirus.

  • Uh, the details of that will be set out mid morning by the J.

  • C.

  • V.

  • I on the regulators will also be setting out the details off the clinical trials on why they felt able to approve this vaccine.

  • So that will happen later this morning and the full prioritization will be set out on.

  • Then the vaccine will be rolled out from next week.

  • Okay, so 800,000 next week.

  • Is it your understanding, Mr Hancock?

  • That aeltus 10 million of those which you're gonna be manufactured in Belgium is you said will arrive before Christmas.

  • Or is it gonna be a longer process than that?

  • No, the timing will determine.

  • Be determined by how rapidly they could be manufactured.

  • Eso the eso, the numbers.

  • But we haven't put a figure on the numbers before Christmas.

  • Um, but what we do know is that we can get started next week with that first, uh, that first load and then several millions will be coming throughout December.

  • Andi, people will get a be contacted by the NHS when it's when it's their turn.

  • Andi, I urge you very strongly to come forward because obviously being vaccinated is is good for you.

  • It's approved as clinically safe by the regulator.

  • Andi.

  • It's good for your community as well to help keep the get this virus finally under control once and for all.

  • We spoke to you, I think, a couple of weeks ago on the on the day that this was all announced on, we talked then about the huge logistical task that is gonna be set before you know, not just this country, but countries all over the world.

  • As we try and vaccinate, can you give our viewers an idea this morning?

  • How exactly it will work?

  • We know.

  • Don't we need to be stored about minus 70?

  • So where will this be taking place?

  • Are we looking at specific areas like maybe those Nightingale hospitals that will be used is it gonna be GP surgeries?

  • How will it work?

  • Yes.

  • So the three modes of delivery for this vaccine right across the UK And this morning I spoke to my devolved colleagues because the NHS, of course, is devolved in Wales and Scotland and Northern Ireland.

  • We're doing this on a on a UK basis, right across the entire UK at the same time, Andi, there's three modes of delivery.

  • The first is hospitals themselves.

  • And of course, most hospitals have the facilities to store something at minus 70 on they used to dealing with vaccines and drugs that have these characteristics.

  • The second is that we will set up vaccination centers, uh, big centers a bit like the Nightingales project and including some of the some of the nightingales.

  • Andi, we'll set them up across the country and then the third is a community model, uh, using with the sport of GPS on pharmacists on others to be able to get out to people where they are now because of the minus 70 conditions off this vaccine, that third model is harder because obviously you have to go to places that have got the facilities that can that can safely store the vaccine.

  • What's is waiting to be injected?

  • Um, but on that is you know, the AstraZeneca's vaccine, which doesn't have the minus 70 requirement, is better suited to that community model.

  • But nevertheless, we'll be using these three models hospitals, the vaccination centers on the community rollout, Andi in order to reach people all guided by that clinical priority on the prioritization that'll be set out later today.

  • You mentioned a couple of those other vaccines.

  • I think it be really helpful.

  • Can you give us any idea off the timescale for those we know that Moderna, which I believe the UK is ordered upto seven million doses of that that that went forward for regulation the day after fighters.

  • Are we to anticipate maybe news on that in the next few days and on what about the AstraZeneca Oxford University vaccine?

  • Where are we on the time scale of that, if you can, Mr Hancock.

  • So the Madonna vaccine is only being manufactured for delivery in April, so that's still some time off.

  • As you say, we have seven million off that on order, but that's for April.

  • The other early vaccine is the Oxford University AstraZeneca vaccine that's currently with the HR who are assessing the detailed data from those clinical trials in the same way that they've just assessed Onda authorized the the fights of vaccine.

  • Now the the AstraZeneca Oxford vaccine has a number of advantages, which is that it is.

  • It doesn't require the minus 70 storage conditions on DWI got 100 million of that on order on dso.

  • The timing of when we might hear on that is entirely in the hands of the regulator.

  • Um, I rightly can't affect that, and I don't know the timing because they have toe take away the time that they need.

  • I mean, they're moving.

  • They've been they've been absolutely brilliant through this and we should pay tribute to the regulator.

  • It's not often regulators get a shout out for doing great work, but they've got they have to take the time that they need to assess whether they can authorize that vaccine in the same way that they've taken the time to be able to authorize this Pfizer beyond vaccine.
