December 8th – On the 8th local time, the United Kingdom officially launched a large-scale coronavirus vaccination project. According to the BBC last month, the British government gives priority to vaccinating residents and employees of nursing homes. But the Rennes Hall nursing home in the UK was told that the coronavirus vaccine would not be vaccinated until February next year. The nursing home suffered heavy losses at the time of the massive coronavirus epidemic in Britain, and half of the people have died from the novel coronavirus.
According to the British Mirror, the nursing home named Ryan Hall is located in Selston, Nottinghamshire, England. It is the most affected by the epidemic. During the first wave of the coronavirus, 24 people died of COVID-19. At present, the situation in nursing homes has stabilized, and there are no new coronavirus cases, and 142 employees and 54 elderly people are regularly tested for nucleic acid.
According to the Associated Press, on the 8th local time, the United Kingdom officially launched a large-scale coronavirus vaccination project. According to the BBC last month, the British government has ordered 100 million doses of Oxford coronavirus vaccine, and residents and employees of nursing homes will be the first to be vaccinated. But nursing home manager Anita Peet said that while a coronavirus vaccine has been opened, she was told her nursing home may not be able to get the vaccine until February next year. “We were going to get the vaccine earlier, but now we don’t have it,” she said sadly.
The vaccine will not be available until February next year.
Anita Pitt said that the initial target of the vaccine was in the hospital, so her nursing home could not achieve the coronavirus vaccination. She said, “If we want to get a vaccine, we must send everyone to Queen’s Medical Center in Nottingham or Sherwood Forest Hospitals in Mansfield, otherwise It will wait until January or February next year.”
The news was very frustrating, Anita Pitt said, “It’s too hard for me to take all the people in nursing homes to those two hospitals for vaccinations.” She believes that the government is releasing so-called good news to calm everyone’s mood. Everyone is immersed in the joy that “a vaccine can be obtained at Christmas”, but this is not the case.
The BBC reported last month that the British government has ordered 100 million doses of Oxford coronavirus vaccine, and residents and employees in nursing homes will be the first to vaccinate.
“At this point, the COVID-19 vaccine has been approved but the government has not yet delivered to us, and we are logistically prepared for this, hopefully such issues will be resolved,” said Dr. Andrew Haynes, medical director for the Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System.
Dr. Haynes also said that the supply of vaccines will exceed the actual delivery, so the supply of vaccines will exceed the demand in the next few weeks, but the other two vaccines are under approval, and other vaccines are expected to be available within the next year. Once the vaccine program is fully launched, established and operational, the government plans to supply 80,000 vaccines a week.
