Coronavirus vaccine plan OUTLINED: NHS paper shows jab roll-out date for EACH age range

Coronavirus vaccine hopes have ignite over the last two weeks, as US developers came forwards with two provisionally effective jabs. While they have not yet recieved full approval for use by the general public, governments across the world have hailed them as a potential way out from the pandemic. The UK’s Government is among them, and recently announced its plans for rolling out the vaccine when one becomes available.

The Health Service Journal published details NHS plans today, stating it had seen leaked documents.

According to the HSJ, all adults would have a chance to get the jab when supplies become available some time next year.

They added everyone who opts to receive a vaccine will have had it by early April 2020.

But “priority cohorts” would recieve their doses first, with vaccinations in this category completed by February. 

The document, allegedly dated to November 13, was shared among NHS regional leaders and contains directions for “concurrent” vaccination. 

While each group would receive a dose at a different time, officials would not need to complete one cohort before moving on to another.
