has the UK run out of Pfizers?

Bit of a problem if you only have AstraZenecas left but you decided not to give them to young people, whose turn it is to get vaccinated now.

He's drawing some pretty hefty conclusions from some pretty ropey data sources.

Anecdata: A few vaccinator friends of mine has said that they have the doses, just not many more willing arms to put them in. The issue with first doses seems to be weak demand, not weak supply.

Maybe we have run out of Pfizers but not mRNAs as we still have Modernas:

@PaulMainwood
says my point about mRNA shortage for adults is wrong. There’s enough Moderna to go around. I trust he’s right about this, but if reticence about vaccines is the reason there… then is that worse still?
UK Gov are refusing to answer questions about supply (for security reasons), but it's possible we've received more than we expected - in June a government that is less worried about the security implications than ours said that
Moderna will increase its deliveries to 1.33 million doses a week in July from 733,000 previously expected, raising the figure to 2.57 million a week in August and 2.95 million a week in September

European countries are almost evenly split on whether to administer coronavirus vaccinations to teenagers as alarm mounts on the continent about a possible fourth wave of infections.

Sixteen countries, including France and Italy, are now vaccinating children above the age of 12 or plan to do so; while 17 countries have decided against, or will only jab teenagers, if they have serious underlying health conditions.

Another four countries remain undecided.
