Health Minister Sajid Javed said the order would include 60 million vaccines from the US company Moderna and 54 million doses from the Pfizer / Bioentech consortium. According to the minister, they will help the United Kingdom “get the time” in the fight against new strains of the corona virus.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wrote on Twitter that the ordered vaccines could be “further modified” to be effective against new strains of the virus.

The number of people suffering from Omigran disease is increasing

The number of cases of the new corona virus variant Omigran rose to 32 on Wednesday in the United Kingdom.

The British government on Monday confirmed that all adults will have access to an additional third dose of the vaccine. This is part of a vaccination program to mitigate the possible effects of the Omigron variant.

The time between the second and third dose is reduced to six to three months. Children 12-15 years of age can receive a second dose within three months of receiving the first dose. According to Javid, people with weakened immune systems can access a fourth dose of the vaccine.
