Now the vaccination is offered to people aged 65-69 years
This was announced on Twitter by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
He also urged people over the age of 70 who have not yet received their first vaccination to contact a therapist and register for vaccination.
Recall that vaccination of the population against COVID-19 in Britain started on December 8, 2020.
Then it was reported that by the end of 2020, the country will receive about 5 million doses of the drug, which will be enough to vaccinate 2.5 million people. People over the age of 80, advanced medical professionals, staff, and residents of nursing homes will be eligible for priority vaccination.
Recall, 90-year-old Margaret Keenan became the first person in the world to be vaccinated with the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine outside of clinical trials.
