LONDON (Reuters) – British health minister Matt Hancock on Friday said that the state-run National Health Service (NHS) would be supported with whatever resources it required for a successful COVID-19 vaccine roll-out programme.

“I’ve made clear to the NHS that whatever resources they need to get this right,” he told BBC radio, adding that -70 degree Celsius freezers needed to store Pfizer’s vaccine candidate were already in place.

“I’m absolutely confident that … the NHS will deliver this roll out.”
