NHS staff ‘set to get Covid vaccine in weeks as Government prepares mass roll-out before Christmas’


NHS staff are set to get a coronavirus vaccine within weeks as the Government prepares a mass roll-out before Christmas, according to reports.

An NHS Trust chief is said to have sent his staff an email which outlines how a national vaccination programme could start in “early December”.

Glen Burley, chief executive of George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust in Warwickshire, told staff that a “coronavirus vaccine should be available this year”, according to the Mail on Sunday.

He added that NHS staff are set to be “prioritised prior to Christmas”.

In his memo, he 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.

“The vaccine is expected to be given in two doses, 28 days apart.”
