Hospitals, sports stadiums and conference centres across the UK will be offering mass vaccinations as the country looks to launch the biggest immunisation programme in its history. Care home residents, people aged 80 and over and healthcare workers will be among the first to be vaccinated, with health chiefs saying prioritising those who need it most will stop 99 percent of preventable Covid-19 deaths. The rest of the population will follow after, with the Government hopeful the mass immunisation can be completed by the Spring.
Where can I get the Pfizer vaccine?
There are currently 17 mass vaccination centres getting ready for the mass rollout, including London’s Nightingale Hospital.
Additionally, 91 hospitals and GPs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will be giving out vaccinations in the coming months.
People will be contacted by the NHS when it’s their time to be vaccinated, with members of the public being urged to exercise patience and wait their turn.
On Thursday, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said “tens of thousands” of people had already been vaccinated.
