UK to introduce coronavirus vaccine by December 2020

The University of Oxford and AstraZeneca are preparing to introduce a coronavirus vaccine soon after Christmas, the Sunday Times reported.

The deputy chief medical officer, Jonathan Van-Tam, said stage three trials of the vaccine have shown it will cut infections and save lives.

Thousands of NHS staff are to undergo training to administer a vaccine before the end of the year.

The vaccine will be given primarily to the most vulnerable categories of the British population –the elderly and people with diseases.
