LONDON Nov 22: Everyone in the UK ‘could be vaccinated by April’ according to leaked documents. Leaked NHS documents, seen by the Health Service Journal (HSJ), suggest that mass vaccination could begin before the end of January if supplies can be secured.

Under the plan, every adult who wants a jab could be vaccinated by early April, the HSJ said.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock told the Downing Street Press briefing that the vaccine rollout could begin in December, if it is approved by the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

But he cautioned that the speed of the roll-out would depend on the speed it could be manufactured.

He said: “If the regulator approves a vaccine we will be ready to start the vaccination next month with the bulk of roll-out in the new year.
