The Government announced this week that the UK will get 40 million doses of the new coronavirus vaccine, which is being developed by pharmaceutical firms Pfizer and BioNTech, but has not yet been approved for use by the NHS.
In Parliament, Leicester South MP Jon Ashworth, who is Labour’s shadow health secretary, said it was a “moment of great hope in a bleak, dismal year that has shattered so many families” and he expressed cautious optimism.
He spoke about getting enough people vaccinated to establish herd immunity and stop the virus spreading.
He said: “As we vaccinate the most vulnerable, there will be less people at risk and deaths and infections will come down.”
