  • Sky News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: UK only buying enough vaccines to protect the most vulnerable” – below is their description.

    The UK is only buying a vaccine to protect the people most vulnerable to COVID-19. Every vaccine bought for the UK stockpile since the summer has been on the assumption that just 30 million people – less than half the population – will get it. With such low coverage, the virus would continue to spread and some form of social distancing would still be needed.
