Not very sure that Gavin Williamson has done us any good  :-\ 
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

Williamson is a silly boy. He has previous for saying daft things - wasn't it he who said Putin/Russia should shut up and go away?. He hasn't done himself any good.
Anyway, it's good news for a change but, please, no more questions on tele/radio about the vaccine. They have now all been asked and answered.
I believe that the UK is the biggest single donor to the Global Vaccine Scheme, thus helping to ensure that poor countries will have these vaccines.
I also think we can do without seeing Government ministers and other people, notably ex USA presidents, being vaccinated live on television. I don't quite see the vaccination programme as a spectator sport.

I thought you might be interested in this:
My husband was talking to his friend today (by phone) and the friend recalled being vaccinated for flu in 1957.
That was Asian flu, from which my husband remembers being very ill - the only one in his family to get that flu.
I looked it up and this is interesting:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/october/1/newsid_3086000/3086843.stm

Very interesting heywood.

I was very ill with Asian Flu in 1957, and I was wondering if it might give me any immunity to COVID-19?

Who knows...? However, I will be more than happy to have the vaccine, when itís available.

Romilly.

My husband will have this vaccine hopefully as will his friend. It was just interesting to see the similarities in the time line etc.

The article was very interesting and almost a mirror image of this current pandemic in terms of its origin, time of year, second wave etc... only difference seems to have been the death toll....

You may have seen and heard all questions asked & answered but many people haven't. If people have questions they deserve to be answered.
The scientists and medics have to tell it, tell it again and tell it again, and again ...
There was a Q&A on "Woman's Hour" today. One question was about pregnant women.
A series on Radio 4 is "How to Vaccinate the World" presented by Tim Hartford.
The point of a past and future POTUS being vaccinated on TV is to inspire confidence. There is a mountain of disinformation.
