NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens has been discussing the preparations for a coronavirus vaccine.
He said there were 200 vaccines in development and he believed one or more of those would be available from the first part of next year.
“We’re also gearing the NHS up to be ready to make a start on administering Covid vaccines before Christmas, if they become available,” he said.
“We reached an agreement with GPs to ensure they will be doing that, and we’ll be writing to GP practices this week to get them geared up to start by Christmas if the vaccine becomes available.”
