The Deputy Chief Medical Officer led a press conference on Wednesday to announce moves by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to alter the advice on the Oxford manufactured vaccine. Following an MHRA investigation into the AstraZeneca jab and potential links with rare blood clots, those under 30 will now be offered an alternative to the Anglo-Swedish jab.

Professor Van-Tam added: “The NHS is all over this.”
