The National Health Service is getting prepared to start distributing possible Covid-19 vaccines before Christmas in case one of the candidates is ready by the end of the year, the head of NHS England said.

“There are over two hundred vaccines in development… we should hopefully get one or more of those available, certainly from the first part of next year,” Simon Stevens, Chief Executive of NHS England, told BBC radio.

“But in anticipation of that, we’re also gearing the NHS up to be ready to make a start on administering Covid vaccines before Christmas if they become available.”
