British government, the MHRA, announced the coronavirus vaccine, Pfizer, which offers up to 95% protection against Covid-19 illness, is favorable for rollout next week.
“Immunisations could start within days for those who need it the most, such as elderly people in care homes, Says BBC.
It should be noted that the United Kingdom has already ordered 40m doses.
According to the UK regulators 10m doses should be available soon, the first 800,000 arriving in the UK in few days.
Source reported “It is the fastest ever vaccine to go from concept to reality, taking only 10 months to follow the same developmental steps that normally span a decade”
UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock on tweeter noted: “Help is on its way.”
The health service was preparing for “the largest-scale vaccination campaign in our country’s history” NHS Chief Executive, Sir Simon Stevens added.
From a reliable source, “Around 50 hospitals are on standby and vaccination centres in venues such as conference centres are being set up now”
Although vaccination can start, people still need to remain vigilant and follow coronavirus rules to stop the spread, say experts.
That means sticking with the social distancing and face masks, and testing people who may have the virus and asking them to isolate, reported from BBC News.
