The vaccine is a significant step forward for getting life back to normal but challenges remain.

The companies plan to apply for emergency approval to use the vaccine by the end of the month.

Pfizer believes it will be able to supply 50 million doses by the end of this year, and around 1.3 billion by the end of 2021.  The UK should get 10 million doses by the end of the year, with a further 30 million doses already ordered.
