@OxfordStays says: No-deal Brexit threatens our supplies of Covid vaccines in multiple ways.
A key ingredient in the new Pfizer vaccine is made in UK by Croda International. The CEO says border delays will interrupt deliveries to the Belgian factory:

The Pfizer vaccine needs to be stored at minus 70 degrees C, long border delays in January will risk efficacy as well as delivery times. UK pharmacists are worried about the negative impact of Brexit on the vaccine roll-out programme:

UK Govt chose not to take part in the EU procurement of the newest and highly effective vaccine Moderna - putting Brexit before UK lives - the US has access to 500m doses, the EU 160m, but as a result of Government policy the UK has only managed to secure 5 million doses. /3

We are reproducing here a joint statement about Brexit by UK and European manufacturing industries which, like many statements by our industries, has to date received inadequate media and political attention. The statement was issued on October 21 by @MakeUK and @CEEMET . /1
<< Make UK-Ceemet: Britain’s manufacturers and their European industry counterparts call for the UK Government and European Commission to return to the negotiating table and find the way through to a deal. /2
Today Make UK makes a joint statement with CEEMET, its sister organisation in Europe whose members are the national employers’ organisations and federations, representing 200,000 companies across the whole of Europe and providing employment for 35 million people. /3

How are we doing? - we've posted 14 memes so far with CEO level statements from tech, chemicals, pharma, construction, UNITE, churches, farming, logistics, science, aeropace, ceramics, food & drink, haulage, Labour, auto. About the same number lined to add by tomorrow. /1
The simple aim is to pass on and amplify what our economy and society is saying about all this - and as Will Hutton wrote in the Observer yesterday, it is indeed just about the entire economy speaking now. /2 theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
There are nuances and varied emphases between sectors - between services and manufacture notably. But the message is pretty consistent. No one is blasé about no deal.
no one has mentioned an upside. And for some, the timescale and failure/impossibility to prepare is scary. /3
