AstraZeneca/Pfizer Project Team
Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (Vaccine Taskforce)
The UK was the first country in the world to approve the AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines. This historic achievement is due to both the vision and leadership of the AstraZeneca and Pfizer team. The Vaccine Taskforce (VTF) demonstrated the collaborative behaviours and commitment required to secure and deliver these vaccines at record speed.
The VTF combined a range of delivery and technical expertise to manage the end-to-end lifecycle, from commercial contracting, logistics and delivery. This project truly epitomised excellence in delivery and demonstrated what the Civil Service can achieve through its innovation and collaboration. This project has set the blueprint for successful delivery.
