Now the vaccination is offered to people aged 65-69 years
In the UK, a new stage of vaccination of the population against coronavirus has begun, in which vaccinations are offered to people aged 65-69 years and “clinically vulnerable”.
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.
