Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove said the Government expects coronavirus vaccines manufactured by Pfizer and AstraZeneca to be supplied to the UK, after a discussion with the EU chief.He told reporters: โ€œThe Prime Minister was very clear, weโ€™ve entered into contractual arrangements with AstraZeneca and Pfizer and we expect those arrangements to be honoured.โ€œAnd President von der Leyen was clear that she understood exactly the UK Governmentโ€™s position so we expect that those contracts will be honoured, we expect that vaccines will continue to be supplied.โ€œOf course we will work with them (the EU) in order to make sure that their own problems can be tackled.โ€œOur first priority is vaccinating people in the United Kingdom, but we also want to work with our friends and neighbours in the European Union in order to help them as well.โ€
