Source Title: UK Government: 40 million doses of neocrown vaccine ordered from France
On February 1 local time, the British government announced that it had ordered 40 million doses of new crown vaccine from French pharmaceutical company valneva, which will be available later this year to 2022.
The British government says the vaccine provides some flexibility if people need to be vaccinated again next winter or longer.
So far, 407 million doses of different new crown vaccines have been obtained in the UK, which is more than enough for the whole population (as of 2019, the UK population is 66.65 million).
Valneva’s vaccine is still in trial. Although it will take time to meet regulatory requirements before it is officially launched, the vaccine has begun production at a factory in Scotland. (CCTV reporter Kang Yubin)
