Speaking to Euronews, Professor Young said: “I think it’s frankly irresponsible to pause the vaccine programme when you have rates of infection so high.

Professor Young was then asked his opinions on AstraZeneca supplies going to waste in places like Germany and the impact the pause would have on future rollouts.
He replied: “Not only will it impact the practicalities of vaccine rollout in terms of all the people ready and poised to vaccinate individuals with supplies of the vaccine.
