Oxford vaccine 2 doses 4 weeks apart.


Leaked memo to NHS executive staff earlier this month, Glen Burley, chief executive of George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust in Warwickshire, wrote: 'Our Trust, alongside NHS organisations nationally, has been told to be prepared to start a Covid-19 staff vaccine programme in early December. 

'The latest intelligence states a coronavirus vaccine should be available this year with NHS staff prioritised prior to Christmas.

Good news, but I think they should also prioritise Care Homes, as so many deaths have been there.   I suppose one trouble is logistics as there are far fewer hospitals than care homes.

More NHS bosses now confirming their hope to start vaccination against coronavirus with the UK vaccine  in a few weeks. There are probably other countries debating this also.  Germany pretty far on with their main vaccine also.
