Lorries have already been loaded up with batches of Pfizer’s vaccine and are now on their way to the UK.

Earlier today, the UK became the first country to approve the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine for widespread use.

Pfizer’s vaccine is also the fastest-ever vaccine to go from concept to distributing, taking just 10 months to follow the same developmental steps that have taken as much as decades in the past.

“We are delivering right now as we speak from Belgium into the UK – that process has already begun. We anticipate that we will be providing some 800,000 doses or so in the coming days, ready for deployment next week by the NHS,” Pfizer’s UK country manager, Ben Osborn.
