Delivery of the coronavirus vaccine will not be disrupted as a result of France’s ban on freight and travel from the UK, the transport secretary has told Sky News.
Grant Shapps said containers unaccompanied by hauliers are still allowed through the port of Dover, which is how most of the jabs arrive from Belgium, so supplies will not be affected by the serious developing situation in Kent.
“This won’t have an impact on the vaccination programme,” he promised.
About half a million people in the UK are believed to have had their first dose of the Pfizer/ BioNTech vaccine so far, Mr Shapps said.
