Once produced in bulk, the vaccine goes to a plant in Wrexham, run by an Indian company called Wockhardt, where it is decanted into vials in a process known as ‚fill and finish‘. The plant can bottle at least 150,000 doses a day.
While the Oxford vaccine uses a harmless, weakened version of a common virus in chimpanzees, the Pfizer jab is known as a messenger vaccine (MRNA), using a genetic code rather than a weakened form of the virus.

The bill has taken two Conservative governments under two different prime ministers and more than a year to pass in Parliament.
Mr Johnson said it was a „fantastic moment“ that „delivers the result of the 2016 referendum and brings to an end far too many years of argument and division“.
