Covid vaccine: When will Covid vaccine be ready UK?

When is the vaccine for Covid-19 going to be available? This is the question everyone wants the answer to.

Both the Pfizer vaccine and Moderna vaccine were found to be more than 90% effective and the Oxford University vaccine has reported 70% protection.

Without a cure or definitive treatment, a vaccine is seen as a key way to get life back to normal.

Scientists only started their research at the beginning of the year and have been working quickly to develop and test vaccines.

So when will a coronavirus vaccine be ready? Who would get it first?

BBC health correspondent Laura Foster looks at the situation.
