COVID vaccine unlikely to be deployed widely in Britain before spring: adviser

Cabinet meeting in London

LONDON (Reuters) – There is unlikely to be a vaccine against the coronavirus that is in widespread use in Britain before the spring next year, government chief scientific adviser Patrick Vallance said on Monday.

“(It’s) unlikely we’ll have a vaccine for any sort of widespread use in the community, before at least spring next year,” Vallance told lawmakers.
