The Government has signed new deals which will provide more than 90 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine, according to multiple reports.

BBC Radio 4's Today programme and Sky News reported the Government has secured an agreement for 30 million doses of a vaccine being developed - and currently at phase two trials - by BioNTech and German firm Pfizer.

There has also been an in-principle deal done for 60 million doses of a vaccine that is being developed by France's Valneva.

The figure of 90 million is in addition to the 100 million doses of vaccine that are being developed by Oxford University in partnership with AstraZeneca, as well as another at Imperial College London which started human trials in June.

Business Secretary Alok Sharma said the new agreements would "ensure the UK has the best chance possible of securing a vaccine that protects those most at risk".

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said he would "absolutely" take part in a coronavirus vaccine trial.

Mr Williamson told BBC Breakfast on Monday that 500,000 people would be needed to take part in clinical trials during the winter months..

Asked if a vaccine would be ready by winter, Mr Williamson said: "The whole purpose is that they will be getting trialled out.

"Half a million people will be having the trials of these vaccines and it will be something that comes after winter."

Asked if he would take part in a trial, Mr Williamson said: "Absolutely. As you are probably aware politicians tend to meet lots of people, so it would be a sensible thing to do."
