UK secures deals for 90m doses of vaccines against coronavirus

The UK government is investing millions to secure two more experimental vaccines against Covid-19, increasing the chances of obtaining a vaccine that works for the population.

The agreement is to buy 90m doses of two vaccines, which would be enough to immunise frontline health workers and care staff, who will be the priority. The government is effectively hedging its bets – the two vaccines work in a different way from the Oxford vaccine, of which it has already bought 100m doses.

It is also urging the public to sign up to take part in trials of Covid-19 vaccines, in the hope of having 500,000 people registered as willing to take part by October.
