The Moderna vaccine is the third vaccine to be made available in the UK after Pfizer and AstraZeneca.
- 37. We have breaking news overnight. The UK began rolling out the Moderna vaccine. It is the third vaccine to be made available in that country after Pfizer and AstraZeneca. The health and social care secretary of that nation says, three out of five people in the UK have had at least one dose of some vaccine so far.
Meanwhile, a top European health official says there is a quote, "casual link" between the AstraZeneca vaccine and blood clots. Remember, we don't use the AstraZeneca vaccine here. That's after more than a dozen countries suspended the use of that vaccine last month. Some have since resumed with age restrictions. But the top health official says the benefit of getting the shot still outweighs the risk.
