The Government website states that over the coming weeks and months the speed at which the vaccination is administered will increase.
It reads: “The rate of vaccination will increase as more doses become available and the programme continues to expand, with more vaccines being delivered direct to care homes.”
Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said: “In just over three weeks, the NHS in every part of the UK has already set up hundreds of vaccination sites to ensure those most in need can receive their jab as quickly as possible.
“This is just the beginning and we are continually expanding our vaccination programme to help everyone get back to normal in the future.”
On top of that, the Oxford vaccine will be rolled out from January 4.
Professor Andrew Pollard, the director of the Oxford Vaccine Group and chief investigator of the Oxford trial, said: “The regulator’s assessment that this is a safe and effective vaccine is a landmark moment, and an endorsement of the huge effort from a devoted international team of researchers and our dedicated trial participants.
“Though this is just the beginning, we will start to get ahead of the pandemic, protect health and economies when the vulnerable are vaccinated everywhere, as many as possible as soon possible.”
