With 357 million doses ordered by the government – and 800,000 doses already sent by Pfizer – it’s hoped that 10 million doses will be here by the end of the year. NHS employees will invite people through text or phone.

Initially, it will be offered in 50 NHS Centers, then by some GP-led primary care networks starting December 14th.
