The Government has decided not to procure Evusheld for prevention through emergency routes at this time. This decision is based on independent clinical advice by the multi-agency RAPID C-19 and a United Kingdom national expert policy working group, which reflects the epidemiological context and pandemic response and recovery policies. However, we have referred Evusheld to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence for evaluation, which is due in April 2023.
