3,000 doses of Covid vaccine leave RAF Brize Norton for the Falklands


An RAF air tanker aircraft departed RAF Brize Norton in the early hours of this morning to deliver 3,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccines to the Falkland Islands.

Flown by RAF Reservists, the vaccine is being provided on behalf of HM Government and reinforces its commitment to British Overseas Territories.

This is the first vaccine flight to the Falkland Islands but the RAF recently transported 11,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine to Gibraltar on three separate occasions.
