The comments made by Matt Hancock, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, on 8 January 2021.
This is fantastic news and another weapon in our arsenal to tame this awful disease.
Through our vaccine delivery plan we have already vaccinated nearly 1.5 million people across the UK. The Moderna vaccine will boost our vaccination programme even further once doses become available from the spring.
While we immunise those most at risk from COVID, I urge everyone to continue following the rules to keep cases low to protect our loved ones.
