The British vaccine manufacturer Astra Zeneca estimates that they will be able to produce 2 million corona vaccine doses a week during January.

The vaccine has been approved for use in the UK and a few other countries in the world. 

The EU has announced that it will take some time before it can be approved in the Union, and thus also in Norway.

The corona vaccine from Astra Zeneca and Oxford University was the second vaccine to be approved in the UK (the vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech was approved in early December).

It is expected that two million doses will be ready next week, and then the same number will be produced every week in the future, The Times writes.

The UK has ordered 100 million vaccine doses. 

The vaccine must be administered in two rounds, which means that the vaccine will cover 50 million Britons.
