Suspend Brexit to allow unrestricted transportation of the Pfizer vaccine
The Pfizer vaccine is time critical & has sensitive logistical & temperature requirements. Brexit problems at our border may cause disruption to a timely vaccination program.
If the vaccination is not carried out in a timely way then more people will die, the economy will suffer and it will take longer to return to a more normal life.

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:
Petitions need to call on the UK Government to take a specific action.
The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020, and arrangements for future trade arrangements when the transitional period ends on 31 December 2020 are a matter of negotiation between the UK and EU.
We could accept a petition calling on the UK Government to seek to extend free movement of goods due to the Covid-19 outbreak, to prevent any impact on the movement of vaccines.
We have published the following related petition, which you might like to sign:
