Dominic Raab – 2020 Statement on the Oxford University/AstraZeneca Vaccine

The statement made by Dominic Raab, the Foreign Secretary, on 30 December 2020.

A global pandemic requires global solutions. The UK and its scientific expertise is a key part of the international fight against coronavirus and thanks to hard work at Oxford University and AstraZeneca, the world is one step closer to defeating it. This month I visited a health clinic in India where this vaccine will be administered.

As the biggest country donor this year to both CEPI and to the COVAX Advance Market Commitment, we are also leading the way in making sure vaccines will be accessible to developing countries.
