Britain was the first country to reach an agreement with BioNTech/Pfizer to supply vaccines and has already ordered 30 million doses in July. Since then, it has signed a contract for an additional 10 million doses. 4 million doses are expected to arrive by the end of December. The Department of Health and Social Care confirmed that the company has received compensation that protects it from legal action due to vaccine-related problems. Permission to supply the product is conditional on the above guarantees being correct and the product can be delivered and stored safely throughout the supply chain, in accordance with the above guarantees.
