Sajid Javid has said that ministers have bought 114million more doses of coronavirus vaccines that can be tweaked to protect against new variants.

The extra Moderna and Pfizer jabs will be delivered in 2022 and 2023, giving the UK a steady supply for the next two years.

The Department of Health said they ‘accelerated’ the signing of the new contracts in light of the newly discovered Omicron strain.

The deal suggests ministers are preparing to boost the nation’s immunity for at least the next two winters.
