The relaxation will only last for one week – from December 22nd to December 26th. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is preparing an announcement where he will outline Christmas rules early next week, the Daily Telegraph claimed.
The Prime Minister had earlier indicated that England would return to a tiered system on December 2.
But he now says the power of the December restrictions will depend on how successful the current lockdown period is.
It comes as soon as the NHS is ready to vaccinate the first coronavirus in the UK.
Sir John Bell, who is involved in the development of the Oxford vaccine in the UK, has previously said that it “seems somewhat impossible” that Pfizer jabs would be available due to the difficulty of storing and distributing them through local GP surgery.
The Pfizer vaccine must be stored in temperatures as low as -80 সেল C.
Last week the company, along with its German partner Bioentech, reported that its JAB had proven to be 90 percent effective in preventing illness after a 3rd stage test.
Mr Hancock said he hoped the UK would start using the vaccine next month until regulators approved it.
He added that the “bulk” of the vaccine rollout would be held next year.
A draft rollout plan put together by NHS England shows that healthcare is planning to vaccinate every adult in the country by April.
Elderly individuals and caring staff will be preferred, but adults between the ages of 18 and 50 on the temporary schedule show may begin getting jobs as early as January. The NHS plan was leaked to the Healthcare Journal.
The health secretary said yesterday he had asked UK regulators to start evaluating the Pfizer bioentech vaccine.
He said: “This is another important step in tackling this epidemic.”
The government has also ordered 100 million jobs for the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.
