Vaccine judged safe and NHS success celebrated
As we print, the news that the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine gaining approval is still fresh, providing hope for NHS staff up and down the country.
The first doses of the jab, which offers up to 95 per cent protection against Covid-19 illness, are already on their way to the UK, with 800,000 due this week. Health and care staff are high in the order of who receives the vaccination first, alongside elderly people in care homes and care home staff.
