London, December 8 The United Kingdom began to vaccinate people against the novel coronavirus on the 8th.
The first vaccinated was a 90-year-old woman.
The British government has announced on the 2nd that its regulator has approved the commissioning of the coronavirus
vaccine developed by the German biotechnology company in cooperation with Pfizer Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. of the United States, which is also the first coronavirus vaccine approved for use in the United Kingdom.
On the 8th, people began to be vaccinated against this vaccine in many parts of the UK.
The NHS England said the first person to be vaccinated was Margaret Keenan, who was vaccinated at a hospital in Coventry.
Keenan said she was “honored” to be the first person to get the vaccine
and hoped that those who received the relevant vaccination notice would be vaccinated as soon as possible.
According to the British government’s plan, when the vaccination service is provided throughout the UK
nursing home personnel, people over 80 years old and front-line medical and social workers will be given priority to vaccination.
Simon Stevens, chief executive of the National Health Service, said that this is only the first step.
There is still more work to be done in the coming months and the supply of vaccines will increase
but before that people should not relax their vigilance and still comply with the epidemic prevention and control requirements.
