Britain announced that it had successfully vaccinated 200,000 people per day with the Corona vaccine, provided that it raised the vaccination rate to 2 million per week to achieve the required rate to protect the most vulnerable by mid-February.
British Health Minister Matt Hancock said, warning that the recent rapid spread of the epidemic has put the British health system in “a very, very serious condition.”
Who gave these numbers to the British TV channel “Sky News”: “At the moment, more than 200,000 people are being vaccinated daily, and the good news is that last week we vaccinated more numbers of vaccinated people during the whole month of December.”
Hancock also explained that the vaccination also includes people between the ages of 40 and 50 years, in order to accelerate the pace of immunization from the epidemic, stressing that by next fall everyone will have received the vaccine, and that the government has requested 350 million doses of the vaccine, and it will gradually receive them in batches, which are Sufficient for all adults in the country.
The British Minister of Health warned that controlling the epidemic with vaccination during the current year does not mean its final elimination, as he said: “I expect that it is likely that we will need to re-vaccinate, because we do not know the duration of immunity from the epidemic that these vaccines provide (…). It is every 6 months, and it may need to be completed every year. ”
