(Reuters) – Britain said on Friday it will restrict the export of flu vaccines being used in the country this winter, adding that there are sufficient supplies as it undertakes a programme to administer the vaccine.

“This action will protect our supply of flu vaccinations, as part of our plans to give 30 million of the flu vaccine ahead of this unprecedented winter,” health minister Matt Hancock said in a statement.

There has been an increase in global demand amid the coronavirus pandemic.
