The Vaccines Programme
Department of Health and Social Care / Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
The COVID-19 Vaccines Programme has brought together teams from the Department of Health and Social Care, the Vaccine Taskforce, NHS England, the UK Health Security Agency, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, and NHS Digital to deploy over 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines so far. The teams have worked at extraordinary pace, overcoming daily hurdles to get millions of people vaccinated safely and quickly as possible. The Vaccines Programme has saved at least 120,000 lives and prevented more than 230,000 hospitalisations and 24million infections. Uptake has exceeded all previous vaccination programmes and the pace and operational excellence of the programme have been globally recognised.
