UK not joining EU vaccine scheme as Britain is AHEAD in race says Hancock

Ms Newman asked: “Is the EU opting out of that EU scheme on vaccine purchase and if so why?”

“The reason is it would not have allowed us to have a say in the vaccines that were procured, the price, the quantity or the delivery schedule.

“We have got a very sophisticated domestic programme, a UK programme for developing the vaccine for two of the most developed candidates in the world including the one that is widely recognised as the most advanced, the Oxford vaccine.
