Government must produce clear roll-out strategy once vaccine approved

Responding to the Prime Minister’s press conference, following the news about the progress towards the development of a COVID-19 vaccine, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said: “News about a vaccine is a real moment of hope for people in the UK and around the world, and has the potential to be life changing. It shows in technicolour what the international community can do when we work together for a common goal.

“Should this vaccine be the game-changer we hope, we need a clear roll-out strategy from the Government, so that people know when they can be vaccinated and how the process will work. The Government must also show a clear plan to keep us safe until the vaccination is available for the majority of people living in the UK.

“We must ensure that developing countries also have access to the vaccine. The coronavirus doesn’t respect borders, and immunisation shouldn’t either.”
