Dedicated GP clinics are being established to each deliver nearly 1,000 Covid-19 vaccines a week in England, according to an official document, as the health secretary, Matt Hancock, declared he was confident the NHS would be ready to “inject hope into millions of arms this winter”.
Although Hancock has sounded a note of caution by warning a vaccine was not yet over the line, he has revealed that he has primed the NHS, supported by the armed forces, to be ready from the start of December for rollout.
