Health Secretary announces that a vaccination programme using the Pfizer jab will be started early next week according to current plans.
The UK becomes the first country in the world to approve the Pfizer / BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for use.
A 'vaccine passport' was not part of the coronavirus vaccine plan, the Health Secretary said.
Studies have shown the jab is 95% effective and works in all age groups.
