  • PHASE TWO VACCINE ROLL OUT TO BE EXPANDED TO EVERYONE IN THEIR 40'S AS SOON AS PRIORITY GROUPS ARE GIVEN THE JAB IN MID APRIL




    The JVCI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) has opted to stick to its age related approach to the vaccine roll out with people under the age of 40 soon to be offered a jab in a bid to cut illness and deaths from the covid-19 virus.

    This means that Police Officers and Teachers will have to wait in line with the rest of the country in order to become eligible for their vaccinations.

    There have been more than 18.7million people in the UK who have already had at least one dose of a Covid vaccine and PM said he aims to have reached everyone in the top nine priority groups by April 15 at the latest.

    Just a single vaccination is enough to prevent the majority of recipients from becoming serious ill and requiring hospitalisation.

    The programme aims to inoculate every adult in the country by the end of July with all lockdown restrictions lifted by the end of June.

    It has also been disclosed that prisoners will not jump the queue to receive the jab ahead of other groups.

    Meanwhile in Salford the vaccination drive blazes on with New cohorts announced.:

    As of today, the Salford NHS Vaccination Service is pleased to announce that they have begun inviting cohort eight, which includes all residents from the age 55 - 59 age bracket to come forward for their jabs.

    A bigger push it to be made to get people from the Black, Asian and Multi Ethnic populations to come forward and take their jabs as take-up in these groups have been far less.

    Dr Mary Ramsay, Public Health England's head of immunisation, said:

    Quote

     

    'The age-based approach will ensure more people are protected more quickly.

    'It is crucial that those at higher risk - including men and BAME communities - are encouraged to take the vaccine, and that local health systems are fully engaged and reaching out to underserved communities to ensure they can access the vaccine.'   

     

     

    Phase Two Vaccinations will come in the following order:

    All those aged 40-49

    All those aged 30-39

    All those aged 18-29
