Pfizer and AstraZeneca have have insisted there is no threat to Covid vaccine supplies after NHS leaders claimed the UK faced a month-long shortage.

The two vaccine manufacturers both said they remained on course to meet delivery commitments, denying any disruption to supplies.

Their statements appeared to contradict a letter from NHS England, which warned vaccination centres there would be a “significant reduction” in supplies in April.

Vaccination centres and community pharmacy-led services were told to close unfilled bookings and “ensure no further appointments are uploaded” to booking systems next month.

NHS bosses said that as a result of the supply issues, people under the age of 50 should only get the jab if they are in a priority group, meaning younger adults could face a longer wait.
