Head of the UK Vaccines Taskforce Kate Bingham is to be given a damehood, the Telegraph has reported, after getting the UK access to millions of doses of six different jabs.
Her expected honour is among a number in next week’s Queen’s Birthday Honours dedicated to “heroes” in the pandemic.
Bingham was appointed to the role in May last year and left at the end of 2020.
People who have had both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine should have restrictions relaxed for them, according to former prime minister Tony Blair.
Blair’s thinktank, The Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, sets out how the country should remain open if the virus persists in the population. The report, “Less Risk, More Freedom”, says that the UK’s NHS app – which is currently used for contact tracing – should be replaced with a system of global health passes.
“The health pass needs to be usable both by national border authorities and other organisations within countries. It should also include the ability to demonstrate time-restricted testing status for those who aren’t able to be vaccinated.
“With this ability to securely prove vaccination status, we can move beyond blunt, catch-all tools and align with other countries by removing certain restrictions for the fully vaccinated – thereby enabling us to sustainably reopen the economy,” the report says.
