The UK government will publish its Covid-19 UK Vaccines Delivery Plan on Monday, with Health Secretary Matt Hancock scheduled to hold a news conference at Downing Street in the afternoon to provide details on the program.
“Since the historic day the first vaccine was approved, the NHS (National Health Service) has made fantastic strides in offering the vaccine to as many at risk people as possible and at record pace,” Hancock said.
The plan will lay out the strategies behind the development, manufacturing and deployment of the vaccines, according to a government statement.
The Health Secretary will visit one of the seven new regional vaccination centers to see an element of the plan in action.
More than 1,000 vaccination sites have already been established across the United Kingdom, helping those who are most at risk from Covid-19 to access vaccines for free, regardless of where they live.
