Written by on 18/10/2020

More than one coronavirus vaccine will be available in the first quarter of 2021, a government scientific adviser has told Sky News.

Sir Jeremy Farrar, who sits on the SAGE committee, said: “I think in the first quarter of next year we will have vaccines – will have more than one vaccine.”

Speaking on Sophy Ridge On Sunday, he added: “The UK is in an extraordinarily strong position – the vaccine task force that Kate Bingham chairs has done an absolutely extraordinary job.

“Britain has access to a number of different vaccines across a range of different approaches.

“Vaccines come in all different styles and approaches and Britain has got a portfolio of vaccines, through which more than one, I’m sure, will come through in the first quarter of next year.”
