DHSC considers the current coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine rollout

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has published a statement by the Vaccine Deployment Minister, Nadhim Zahawi, on the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine rollout and has confirmed that those receiving their first vaccine dose has now surpassed 12 million. Zahawi states that the vaccine is the ‘way out of this pandemic’ and that the UK’s world-leading genomics capacity has enabled the identification of different strains when they have appeared in the UK, which allows the deployment of surge testing to try and contain the spread. Zahawi concludes by stating that all steps must be followed, which includes getting a test if coronavirus symptoms appear.
